Types of Post-Conviction Relief in Washington

The type of post-conviction relief you may be eligible for will depend on the unique facts and circumstances of your case, legal options include:

  • Appeals: Our Spokane appeals lawyer can determine whether your case can be appealed and the type of appeal that may be available to you. You will be subject to certain time limits for an appeal which is why you should contact us as soon as possible. To win an appeal, it must be demonstrated to the court that errors took place during the course of your case, such as during the pretrial stage, at trial, or during the sentencing. Appeals are based strictly on issues that occurred during these phases and does not involve new evidence.
  • Petition for review with the Washington Supreme Court: This can be done when your appeal fails, if appropriate.
  • Vacating convictions: To have a conviction vacated is to changes your record from "convicted" to "vacated," meaning the conviction does not have to be listed as your criminal history on future job, housing, or other applications. The Washington State Patrol does not report vacated convictions, but court records will still be available. Different procedures apply to misdemeanors and felonies.
