LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - After Ryan Widmer was found guilty of killing his wife, Sarah, his defense attorneys began discussion of an appeal. Attorneys have 30 days to file an appeal in the courts.

Relatives and supporters were talking about that as they left the courtroom Tuesday.

Legal experts were asked what would be in that appeal, and we've learned about at least two issues that could be important in any appeal.

  1. Judge Bronson's refusal to grant Widmer's lawyers more public money for expert witnesses' fees and testimony.
  2. Judge Bronson's refusal to allow his lawyers to attack the credibility of Lt. Jeff Braley, the Hamilton Township police detective who led the investigation and lied about his job qualifications.

Lt. Jeff Braley remains on the job.

Any appeal would continue Ryan Widmer's case. This is a case that's spanned 2 1/2 years and three trials.
