Understanding Criminal Appeals
When it comes to criminal appeals, a comprehensive grasp of the process is essential. The party filing the appeal, known as the appellant, undertakes the task of persuading the appeal court that a mistake made by the lower court justifies overturning its decision.
On the opposing side, the respondent argues that the lower court's judgment stands accurate and should remain unchanged. These nuanced arguments are weighed carefully by the appeals court, which ultimately determines whether to intervene or uphold the ruling made by the lower court.
Criminal appeals are classified as:
- Conviction Appeals: Every individual convicted of a criminal offence has the right to launch an appeal against their conviction. Depending on the court level where the trial occurred and the procedural approach taken by the crown, you can appeal to either the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench or the Alberta Court of Appeal.
- Sentence Appeals: This category of appeal is relevant when you acknowledge your conviction but believe that the sentence does not align with the circumstances or merits of the case. By opting for a sentence appeal, you strive to achieve a more equitable outcome in terms of the penalties imposed.
Tailored Approach To Your Appeal
Every criminal appeal case is unique, and we recognize that a one-size-fits-all approach is inadequate. That's why we personalize our defence strategy to align with the specific nuances of your case. Whether we're challenging evidentiary issues, procedural errors, or constitutional violations, our goal is to maximize your chances of a successful appeal outcome.
