Appeals/CCRC

It is possible to appeal a conviction if it can be shown that it is 'unsafe'. A conviction may be unsafe if, for example, the judge applied the law incorrectly or new evidence / facts have come to light after the trial.

An appeal against sentence can be made if there are grounds that suggest the sentence imposed was 'manifestly excessive'.

An appeal against conviction or sentence can be made at any time. However, time limits do apply and any significant delay can cause problems. As a result contact should always be made with us as soon as possible. The case may involve the Crown Court, the Court of Appeal or the Criminal Cases Review Commission (CCRC).

We also have experience of dealing with Appeals to the Court of Appeal against  Sexual Offenders Prevention Orders (SOPO).

We will consider your case and give you professional and honest advice, covering the prospects of success.
