Appeals – Court of Criminal Appeal
The Court of Criminal Appeal is the State’s highest court for criminal matters. If you have been convicted or have pleaded guilty and been sentenced in the Supreme Court or District Court, you may appeal to the Court of Criminal Appeal.
There are a number of grounds for appeal, including a challenge to a conviction involving a question of law. The Court of Criminal Appeal may also grant leave to appeal in matters involving questions of fact, or mixed questions of fact and law. It may also grant leave to appeal in cases where the severity or adequacy of the sentence is challenged.
If you disagree with the outcome in your criminal law case, you can appeal the decision in the Court of Appeal. The Criminal Lawyers at George Sten & Co assist in all criminal law appeals.
