What if the offender appeals against their conviction or sentence?

If an application is made to the Crown Court to appeal against a conviction or sentence in the Magistrates' Court, you are entitled to be informed of the following information by your Witness Care Unit (or the police if appropriate) within 1 working day of them receiving it from the court:

  • any notice of appeal that has been made;
  • the date, time and location of any hearing;
  • the outcome of that appeal, including any changes to the original sentence.

You are also entitled to:

  • wait and be seated in court in an area separate from the appellant and their family and friends. The court will ensure this is done wherever possible;
  • be provided with a contact point at the Crown Court;
  • receive information about victims' services where appropriate and available.
