Post Conviction Relief Defense Attorney Rhode Island

Do You Need Rhode Island Post Conviction Relief?

Post Conviction Relief usually appeals to immigrants, non-citizens, and prosecuted sex offenders. Not all are guilty however, and not everyone convicted has been given the best legal representation to begin with.

We understand that.

The good news though, is that there’s hope to resolve the situation.

Why You Need An Immigration Lawyer

A conviction can lead to unfavorable immigration consequences. Non U.S. Citizens or Aliens are subject to deportation when a crime is committed.

In addition, certain crimes can lead a defendant to being labeled as a sex offender – for life.

How do you resolve a closed case? After the fact, a top legal representative such as John R. Grasso is able to file for Post Conviction Relief to the Superior Court. The best arguments are detailed in this case, and the sooner the motion is filed, the better the outcome usually is.

Rhode Island Code Chapter 10-9.1 outlines the comprehensive details of Post Conviction Remedy within this state. Our lawyer understands all the proceedings, including the requirements for appeal, waivers, pleading, innocence protection, and other indexes within this statute.

What Else Can A Defense Attorney Help With?

There are several things that an aggressive immigration attorney can help with. Here are a few examples:

  • Are you in custody? Let John R. Grasso file a Writ of Habeas Corpus, which is a motion filed to report mistakes during trial.
  • Motion To Vacate, which argues that a former lawyer did not provide a convict with accurate guidance.
  • Appeal to reduce sentencing – a skilled lawyer can help to reduce sentencing. If lowered to a misdemeanor for example, the crime may no longer be deportable.

Also noteworthy is the fact that if a criminal case is open, be sure to speak with a lawyer before the actual conviction.

If you’ve been arrested for any type of crime, and you are an immigrant, it’s imperative to contact a lawyer right away. This is because it’s much simpler to reduce or dismiss charges on an open case.

However, if you’ve already been convicted, all hope isn’t lost.

Let’s talk. Contact John R. Grasso now.
