What is a Direct Appeal?

Upon the entry of a Final Judgment and Sentence against a criminal defendant, the criminal defendant has the right to take a direct appeal.

A direct appeal is heard by a higher court than the court who entered the defendant's Judgment and Sentence.  On appeal, a criminal defendant can argue that there were legal errors made in his case which require that his Judgment and/or Sentence be reversed.  It is important that a criminal defendant raise all viable claims of error cognizable on direct appeal, in his appeal, as many issues are considered waived if they are not argued on direct appeal. 

What are Collateral Proceedings?

The term collateral proceedings is a broad term.  Some claims that can be brought through collateral proceedings are claims of ineffective assistance of counsel, newly discovered evidence, and that a sentence is illegal.
