Forms and Motions Update
We have recently updated our Trial Motions and Forms Index to include a few useful documents from the Office of the Appellate Defender. There is one new form, and several new entries on the list of motions, but the newest entries can be found at the top of each list. These new additions include a new handout for juvenile specific jury instructions and a handout for extending Miller and Roper to 18- to 25-year-olds. There are also motions to prevent the State from seeking life without parole or the death penalty in cases where clients are prosecuted as adults for crimes committed in their youth, a motion for discretionary transfer hearing, and a motion to prevent the State from pursuing a felony murder conviction. Please check out our Trial Motions and Forms Index here or explore the Office of the Appellate Defender‘s page.
