The following Corporate Crime guidance note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
This Practice Note focuses on appeals against conviction and sentence and other orders made to the Court of Appeal Criminal Division (CACD) under the Criminal Procedure Rules 2015 (CrimPR), SI 2015/1490, Pts 36 and 39.
It explains the process of commencing an appeal by way of making an application for leave to appeal lodged directly with the Court of Appeal. For further information on obtaining certificates certifying a case is fit for appeal from the Crown Court, see Practice Note: Criminal appeals—certificates of fitness to appeal from the Crown Court.
For detailed guidance on the progress and conduct of an appeal in the CACD, see Practice Note: Conducting an appeal in the Court of Appeal Criminal Division (CACD).
An appeal can only be made to the CACD, if the defendant has been convicted in the Crown Court. For information on appeals against conviction following guilty pleas in the Crown Court, see below: Appeals against conviction following guilty pleas in the Crown Court.
An appeal against conviction or sentence in the magistrates' court is made to the Crown Court or in some circumstances to the Administrative Court. See Practice Notes: Appealing a conviction in the Crown Court and Appeal against sentence in the Crown Court.
