Vacating A Judgment Through A 440 Motion
There are a variety of circumstances that may provide you with grounds to vacate a Judgment of Conviction. In addition to the appellate procedure, Criminal Procedure Law Section 440 provides a legal mechanism to have your conviction reviewed.
A 440 motion allows you to request the court to vacate the decree and to re-open your case. It differs from an appeal as 440 motions are presented before the trial court. On many occasions, attorneys utilize such motions to bring newly discovered evidence to the attention of the trial court. Should there be a granting of your motion, it may be possible to set the judgment aside resulting in the dismissal of the case or the ordering of another trial.
