Rule 35 or a 2255 Motion


Rule 35 / 2255 Motion

Other federal appeal issues exist besides a direct appeal to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Rule 35 is a motion filed by the United Attorney to reduce the sentence of someone already sentenced because that defendant has provided substantial assistance to the government after sentencing. A 2255 Motion is similar to a state court appeal under the PCRA, where the motion states that the defendant’s own lawyer did a bad job, or in legal terms the defendant had “ineffective assistance of counsel.” However, 2255 can also be used to challenge the constitutionality of a conviction or sentence. The criminal appeals lawyers at The Zeiger Firm understand Rule 35 and 2255 Motions and can help you in your post conviction matters.
