Mandate is a fancy word for a court order.  It depends on what they ordered.  If it says affirmed, then it means the conviction and sentence stands.  If it says reversed, then they might get a new trial or be released.  The word mandate by itself means little unless you know what the court mandated.  I hope that helps.

Thank you. It just states Mandate from Mo Ct of Appeals. Was not sure how it effected a ten year sentence.

How long does it take for the state of Mo to review  a case  for appeals?

It all depends.  It usually takes several months.  The court of appeals is a unique thing and they move at their own pace.
