If you are dissatisfied with the conviction after a trial, you may appeal against it.
If you have pleaded guilty to a charge and are dissatisfied with the sentence, you may appeal against the sentence only.
If you wish to appeal against conviction or sentence, you should inform your lawyer immediately. A Notice of Appeal against conviction, sentence or order must be filed at the Crime Registry within 14 days from the date of judgment or sentence. After the application is filed, the Court can address the issue of bail and the bail amount pending appeal.
The Judge will release the “Grounds of Decision” after which you have to file a Petition of Appeal within 14 days of such release, which states the grounds on which you are dissatisfied with the conviction or sentence.
The Prosecution can also appeal against both sentence and/or conviction.
