As the defendant in a criminal matter, you have the right to appeal your case. You cannot appeal a judgment just because you disagree with it. You need to provide evidence that there was a harmful error of law or fact. Most of the time, appeals are made for very complex and specific reasons. Your lawyer can help you decide whether or not you should appeal. Appeals are heard at the the Eighth District Court of Appeals for Cuyahoga County, Ohio.
