Hi - My son is sentenced to 5-7 yrs. and the time limit you were speaking of is 30 days from sentencing. Long story short......my son was sentenced on July 15th 2002 and we found out the beginning of August that we had 30 days to file for appeal or we have to wait at least 5 yrs. . We found a wonderful attorney (we had a public defender in the beginning) and he rushed things through in August. We still have a tough sentence but we understood the law much clearer alittle late but clearer.
Good luck with your situation.
PS I think it may depend on the charge also.
