Does your statement get thrown out from the first trial if you appeal your case? Or do they give you a chance to recant your statement because it is a new trial. I know someone who was not videotaped or recorded when giving their statement, and want to kno how that can still hold up in a court of law. They are appealing their case and want to throw out the statement that wasn't recorded from the first case and give a new statement. Is that possible.

Re: Appealant case
Unless that was an issue on appeal that was decided in your favor, all of the evidence will be the same.
