Appeals / Post-Conviction Relief Division
The Fifth Judicial District Attorney’s office has a designated lawyer, Amanda Wilkins, to handle the multiple appeals and post-conviction applications allowed by state and federal law following a criminal conviction. Douciere has been a prosecutor since 1989, handling thousands of felony and misdemeanor cases.
The Appellate Division handles cases for all three parishes. Rarely is a criminal case completely finished, as many criminal defendants have rights to appeal certain aspects of their case in the state and federal appellate process. Moreover, after appeals are exhausted, defendants have certain rights to have their convictions examined under a process called Post-Conviction Relief.
The District Attorney’s Office, acting as a representative of the victims of crimes, vigorously safeguards lawful convictions of defendants who have injured individuals and the community through their actions.
