An appeal of a lower court decision is a legal process by which a higher court is asked to review the trial court's record and rule on the legal issues raised by the appellant (a party to a case--in a criminal case, it is usually the defendant).

All correspondence regarding a County or Circuit Criminal appeal can be sent to:
