Sometimes the offender asks the court to look at the case or the sentence again. This is called an appeal.
If the offender does appeal, you are entitled to the following information within 1 working day of the Witness Care Unit receiving it from the court, to:
If the appeal is to the Court of Appeal or it is a UK Supreme Court case you can ask for a copy of the decision from the relevant court (which is called a Judgment) once it has been published.
If there is going to be an appeal hearing, you may be able to make a new or further Victim Personal Statement. This lets you tell the court about the longer term effects that the crime has had on you. Your Witness Care Unit will let you know if it is possible to make such a Victim Personal Statement.
