Can I appeal on grounds of lack of evidence?

Generally speaking, a direct criminal appeal is not the time to re-argue the evidence in your case. However, if in the trial court, your attorney made a motion for a judgment of acquittal, also known as a directed verdict, and that motion was denied, then that issue can be raised on appeal where you’re basically challenging the sufficiency of the evidence against you in the appellate court.
