Under the Minnesota Rules of Criminal Procedure, if an appeal is filed the defendant can request that he or she be released from prison/jail pending the outcome of the appeal. Although the rules provide for such a request, it is rarely granted. It is not uncommon from someone to languish in prison for over a year while an appeal is pending, and then be released when the appeal is won. This results in an innocent person being incarcerated for a crime he or she didn’t commit.
