Frequently Asked Questions

We primarily work with inmates whose appeals are either completely or mostly exhausted. The Conviction Integrity Group will complete an exhaustive background check on all the jury members in your case. We then compile the information we find for you to take to your attorney. Your attorney would then file a motion for a new trial based on the information we find. At that point, we work with your attorney to make sure they have all of the information they need to make the motion. At the request of your counsel, one of our Private Investigators may be called to testify. If the inmate signed for a plea bargain, we can help with investigative work and our staff attorney will review their case to determine the best route available for any appeals going forward.

It is easier and cheaper if the inmate or their family provide copies of documents we need. There is a document collection fee of $2,500 for us to collect these documents. Contact us today to find out more.

If you are convicted of murder of a police officer, and one of the jurors is married to a police officer, that could be a reason for your counsel to dismiss the juror for bias. However, if that juror answered on their questionnaire that no one in their family is a police officer, this is an example of a violation of the 6th Amendment. Motions for a new trial based on jury bias is a very complicated procedure and not all appellate attorneys are familiar with the process. In addition to that, Juror bias is usually used only as a last resort because the information can be subjective. In the previous example, a judge could rule that this juror may have lied on their questionnaire, but maintain that the juror could have remained unbiased. Whereas a different judge in a different court could rule completely differently on the same set of circumstances. We always caution that while this is a means to try and get back into court, it is in no way guaranteed to work.

The best way is to schedule a free consultation with our Lead Investigator to discuss all of the different options. It really depends on whether or not the inmate went to trial or if they signed for a plea deal. There are also many different factors within each of those options that could affect not only the fee, but also the likelihood of the inmate getting their case dismissed. The consultation is free and usually lasts no more than 30 minutes.

No, absolutely not. The Constitution of the United States guarantees everyone a fair trial by an impartial jury of their peers, or fair treatment (truthful) by the officers of the court if they sign for a plea. This means that everyone, innocent or guilty, deserves to be treated equally under the Constitution. If the trial was unfair, i.e. a juror had a bias that they did not reveal, then that would be an unfair trial — or if an attorney lied to the defendant in order to get them to sign for the plea, this is also unfair. So we work with all inmates, regardless of their guilt or innocence, to make sure that happened.

Although it is possible for jurors to be investigated before the trial, this is not our specialty. However, if your attorney would like to utilize our jury investigation services, have them contact us today.

Jurors take an oath to be truthful and uphold the law. This means that the information they provide on the questionnaire is sworn to be truthful. If they lie, then that is considered perjury and may be prosecuted. That ultimately is up to the District Attorney as to whether or not they want to prosecute them. In most cases they are not, but it always remains a possibility.

Not at this time. However, we do offer very affordable payment plans for our services. Please contact us today and schedule a free consultation with our Lead Investigator to find out more.

While we investigate these jurors for jury bias, it is possible that we find evidence or jury misconduct. While this doesn’t happen very often, jury misconduct can be much more serious than a jury bias. We would work with your attorney to turn over all of the information we discovered, and of course work with them throughout the appeal process to ensure all of the information is turned over to the court. The difference between jury bias and jury misconduct is simply that jury bias is intentionally omitting or lying about their past, their experience, or their relationships. Jury misconduct is an action taken by a jury member that was outside of the scope of the jury instructions, such as talking to the media about the case while they’re under sequester.

Yes, our Private Investigators work with appellate attorneys to investigate cases on appeal, including interviewing potential and previous witnesses, meeting with inmates to gather additional information, and doing background checks of key players in a trial post-conviction. If you or your attorney would be interested in talking with us about that, please Contact Us and let us know. We also have a staff attorney that will usually give you a better deal since you’re already working with us. This is just one more reason to choose the Conviction Integrity Group.
