O.C.G.A. § 5-5-1 through O.C.G.A. § 5-5-51 provides the power of the superior, state, juvenile courts, and the City Court of Atlanta to correct errors and grant new trials in different scenarios where the law allows. In any case when the verdict of a jury (or Judge) is found contrary to principles of justice and equity, where the verdict was decided in spite of the weight of the evidence, where material evidence was illegally admitted or withheld, where there is newly discovered material evidence, or on other grounds based on sounds legal discretion – the judge may grant a new trial before a new jury.

This Motion for New Trial must be filed within 30 days of the jury verdict or the judge’s entry of judgment.

O.C.G.A. § 5-6-35 specifically allows for a Motion for New Trial in proceedings involving a revocation of probation or the Sexual Offender Registry.

Appeals to Appellate Courts

It is always important to obtain the assistance of an Atlanta direct appeals lawyer when charged with any federal crime, but it’s especially important to have a CrImmigration attorney when charged with a criminal immigration offense because it is a very specialized area of law.
