Post-conviction relief is another specialized area of law. Similar to appeals, post-conviction relief is handled after a conviction and sentence has been imposed (and usually after a direct appeal has been exhausted). Typically, a motion for post-conviction relief alleges either that trial counsel was ineffective or that newly discovered evidence has come to light.
