1. Dear *****na, this is not a correct interpretation of the law. Essentially, your son can file an appeal even though only two of the jury did not believe he was guilty. The right to appeal is not limited by how many jurors did not find him guilty.
2. If your son's current lawyers will not file an appeal, then he should get a different solicitor and barrister to represent him. The reason given for not appealing is not a valid reason. This is because the right to appeal is not limited by how many jurors did not find him guilty.
3. Even though your son has been found guilty of sexual abuse, he can still appeal. There is a right of appeal given to every criminal defendant. If your son wishes to appeal, then he should find lawyers who will appeal for him.
