Seeking to have a prior conviction vacated is a legal remedy that may apply to your case. At Robert Sinesi Law Firm, we have concentrated our practice on traffic violations for decades. Many traffic offenses involve serious consequences, especially those that are charged as criminal misdemeanors or felonies. You may believe that your conviction was unfair or based on faulty grounds.

In such cases, we highly recommend that you seek our experienced legal assistance to explore having your prior conviction vacated in Syracuse. We can thoroughly review your situation to determine if a motion to vacate can be applied and, if so, take legal action on your behalf.

Filing a Motion to Vacate

New York Criminal Procedure Law Section 440.10 establishes the grounds for filing a motion to vacate a prior conviction.

These grounds can include such matters as:

  • You received a judgment that was based on duress, misrepresentation, or fraud
  • Trial evidence was false
  • Your legal rights were violated in the procurement of evidence
  • Improper or prejudicial conduct occurred
  • New and important evidence has materialized
  • A judgement was obtained that violated your legal rights

Once the motion to vacate has been submitted to the court, the court will make a determination on the matter.

The only way you will know if a motion to vacate is appropriate for you is to get an evaluation from a qualified attorney. At Robert Sinesi Law Firm, we can provide you with an honest evaluation of where you stand in regards to this remedy. Even if such a remedy is not suitable in your case, other legal solutions may exist that could make a difference as post-conviction relief.

Call us for an assessment regarding your case at (315) 514-3033 or contact us online. Your initial consultation is complimentary.
