Appeals

Have you been wrongfully convicted? Were you unprepared or unrepresented at trial? Unhappy with the sentence imposed by the court?


What Is An Appeal?

An appeal is a request to a higher court to review a lower court trial or other decision.

Who hears appeals: Appeals from decisions by justices of the peace are heard by a judge of the Ontario Court of Justice. Appeals from decisions of judges of the Ontario Court of Justice generally are heard by a judge of the Superior Court of Justice. Appeals have to be done within 30 days of being convicted.

Decisions that can be appealed: You may appeal against your conviction, the sentence you received (including a probation order), or against both the conviction and the sentence (including a probation order). The prosecutor also has a right to appeal. If you were acquitted at your trial, the prosecutor may appeal that decision. The prosecutor may also appeal against your sentence.
