Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Could you please explain your situation a little more?
Ok. Could you please explain your situation a little more?
Have you complained to the Legal Ombudsman about this yet?
You can't appeal on the basis you did not have your case presented now to want to.
It would only be allowed if a conviction was 'unsafe'.
This is defined as being two areas:
a) error or irregularity of procedure
b) lurking doubt
These fall into further sub categories of
b) Inconsistent verdicts
c) Wrongful admission or exclusion of evidence:
d) Defects in the Indictment
e) No case to go to the jury
g) Inadequacy of legal representation
If you can satisfy any one of these grounds then you may have a case. Therefore you need to focus on these areas.
For more information please see:
That second one is very detailed guidance which you can read.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Indeed. But the grounds of appeal are above, can you see that?
Yes it seems logical. At this stage its only grounds of appeal. You can submit further detailed reasons later.
The indictment is only the document itself, not the facts.Does that clarify?
I think it has merit - yes.
Does that clarify?
I have read your very long replies and considered them in detail.
Based on what you have said I am sure that given the detail provided, you have grounds for appeal.
But remember when submitting grounds they need to be brief and to the point.
You can make detailed written submissions before the appeal hearing and on that basis say everything you need to.
But on the basis of what you have provided me, I consider that your appeal has realistic prospects of success
I agree its hard to be shorter.
But in your grounds of appeal you need to keep it short, to the point and concise.
Usually you submit a paper appeal.
Guidance is contained here:
You have to present a case yes. Or you can get someone to represent you.
You can try and use it is a ground for bail, but you are more likely not to have it granted because you have appealed.
Otherwise everyone would do the same
In a newspaper, you can try. Its up to the Court whether they find that worthy.
In reality what you say to a newspaper is not under oath so you can say whatever you want.
Yes submit in email but make sure it has been received and its acceptable.
So check with the Court once its been sent.
I think you have grounds yes based on what you have said.
I would put ALL grounds in. You have nothing to lose
I think that adds to it as well. Make sure you put all points so you have the very best chance.
Reading and considering.
I dont think its your strongest ground, but you may want to put it in too.
That way everything is thrown in
Thanks. You could add this too. But lack of disclosure you would need some evidence of that.
You can. But you may not need that yet.
Again, its a point of appeal, but not the strongest you have.Does that clarify?
Sure. But I ask you to kindly bear in mind you have paid a limited sum for me to review these for you
This one comes down to credibility - the jury with believe the witness or they do not.
Again, not your strongest point.
Yes again this is a ground. But you are bordering on the desperate.
I would keep the points short and concise.
But yes, I can see your logic.
Sure. I think you have reasonable grounds having considered them all.
Sure. Again I think this adds to your appeal.
But on the basis of the grounds you have shown me, you have a realistic prospect of success
Can I clarify anything else for you?
Then if that is the case on that ground alone the appeal should be allowed.
I would stick that ground in too. Better in than out.
Does that clairfy?
I would put them in the order you have presented here. It is quite logical. The judge will read all of them. So it does not need to be the strongest first.
I would put it in as its better in than out.
So keep it in.
I would agree, concise and to the point.
Can I clairfy anything else for you today please?
Yes, I understand that.
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
It's a one off fee, but the fee you have paid is quite low compared to the work I am doing.
You can apply to bail when you come back to the uk
yes you probably need a solicitor after submission.
You can put your partners if you will be there.
Yes u can ask for it to be accelerated but it depends on the judges workload.
They will not grant bail, you have failed to surrender.
That's the only uk address you have so use that,
That's not a defence to failing to surrender. But that is a New question as we are off topic.
Can I help with anything else today?
Newspapers can write what they want, within reason.
You can ask for me again for your new question if you wish.
I am pleased to have been able to help you.
