Third Judicial District


Appeals and Post Conviction

The Appellate Division handles cases for both parishes. A defendant has a right to appeal his/her conviction in all felony convictions and to request an appeal (writ) in misdemeanor convictions.  Acquittals or Not Guilty verdicts are not appealable by the State. In addition to an appeal, defendants may file post–conviction motions in state and federal courts.
