It’s important to note that a criminal law appeal is not a re-trial, but rather a review by a higher court to determine whether your trial was held fairly and properly.
In Canada, anyone found guilty of breaking a law may ask a higher court to review their trial
If the appeal court deems your trial to be held unfairly, unreasonably, or incorrectly the appeals court may reverse the sentencing and order a new fair trial. The court may also enter an acquittal or stay of proceedings instead of holding another trial, which means that you cannot be charged again on the same charges and the convicted person will be let free with no charges or penalties.
Your best approach to this situation is to immediately seek a lawyer that will take the time to help you understand your legal rights, and who will fight for your winning results. Your first meeting with Bobby Russon and Windsor Criminal Law is always free.
