|CPL 440 Motions | Post-Verdict/Conviction Motions|
The Law Office of Matthew C. Hug represents individuals, convicted of crimes that wish to pursue a CPL 440 motion. If you feel as though you possess meritorious grounds for a CPL 440 motion, contact Matthew C. Hug at 518-283-3288 immediately. Time is of the essence with some of the grounds -- i.e. newly discovered evidence, mandating prompt attention.
These are motions brought following conviction and sentencing in a criminal case that seek to vacate the conviction and/or sentence. CPL 440 motions are very limited and may only be brought pursuant to eight grounds.
Grounds of a CPL 440.10 Motion to Vacate Judgment of Conviction
CPL 440.20 Motion to Set Aside Sentence
A CPL 440.20 motion is the vehicle used to have a sentence set aside on the ground that it was unauthorized, illegal or otherwise invalid as a matter of law. These motions may be made at anytime after entry of judgment.
Please note: a recent decision by the New York Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has recently declared that New York's persistent felony offender status enhanced sentencing framework is unconstitutional.
