Attorney Richard Terry believes his client, Sabrina Limon, is innocent and has been falsely convicted of murder.

Terry has filed a motion of appeal, which means an appellate attorney will be reviewing the trial and filling the appeal.

"As a defense attorney, those convictions haunt you, where you have tried to do everything humanly possible in your power to try and convince the jury of your client’s innocence, and despite your best efforts the jury still convicts," said Terry on Wednesday.

To get a second chance, the first trial would need to be proven unfair.

Terry's biggest gripe was that everything in the courtroom was streamed live for the public to watch.

"The witnesses are sitting there at home, watching this stuff which can affect the testimony you get from them," said Terry.

Limon will be back in the courtroom Nov. 3 for sentencing.
