If I win my appeal, will the prosecutor drop the charges?

 

 Maybe.

If we appeal your case, fully brief it, argue it, and convince an appellate court that the trial judge should not have admitted certain evidence, or a confession or admission, then the prosecutor may make the decision that the case cannot be won without that evidence.  They may then not want to retry the case, and will dismiss the charges.  Trials are expensive for all parties, and if key evidence is suppressed up front, or an appeals court reverses the trial court’s decision and sends your case back to be retried, one of our first strategies will be to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the case, or to work out a favorable resolution for you.
