A post-sentnece motion is filed in the Court of Common Pleas and is heard by the judge who sentenced the defendant. Post-sentence motions are important because there is the possibility that the failure to raise all of your issues in the motion could result in a waiver of your right to have the Superior Court hear and decide those issues on the merits. You should contact an attorney before proceeding.
