I Have Some New Evidence That Was Not Presented At Trial, Can I Bring That Up On Appeal?

With few exceptions, the court of appeals does not consider any new evidence on appeal. The appeals court is primarily concerned with determining whether a mistake was made by the trial court based upon the evidence the trial court had before it at the time of the trial or hearing.
