The law: The Criminal Procedure Rules 2014 Part 63

 

Everyone has the right to appeal against a sentence or conviction imposed in any Magistrates court in England and Wales.

The appeal is usually to the Crown Court and will involve the case being heard again. There are strict time limits so it is important to act quickly.

The appeal will take place before a Crown Court Judge and two Magistrates.

There are other more technical kinds of appeal which concern the interpretation of the law. These are more complicated and the appeal will be to the Administrative court. This type of appeal is to decide if an error of law has been made.
