NRS on Post Conviction Relief

Some of us think that it's already too late when the sentence of the offender's crime has already been read by the court. Although this holds some truth, little do we know that there is still a chance for the offender and for the attorney to send for petition. And this motion is called—post-conviction relief.

According to Nevada Revised Statutes or NRS, post-conviction relief is a process by which you can send a petition to the highest court to take a look at the verdict made by the lower court. However, this not applies to every case and not everyone can experience this.

Post-conviction relief are given only to offenders who claims that their attorney did not help in gathering enough evidences and witnesses, or when an attorney did not explain the entirety of the offender’s case.

Being sentenced for a crime is surely one of the hopeless situations that could ever happen to a person. However, what many of us do not realize, is that there will always be a chance as judges usually accepts motions for post-conviction relief to those who are deserving for it. You may somehow feel a little hopeless but keep note to fight for your post- conviction relief with the help of your trusted criminal defense attorney.
