If you receive a conviction or sentence in the District or Supreme Courts and opt to challenge it through an appeal, your case falls within the realm of an 'indictable appeal'.
The responsibility for adjudicating indictable appeals lies with the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal (NSWCCA).
It is important to note that, unlike the process of appealing from the Local Court, there is no automatic 'right of appeal' to the NSWCCA. Instead, pursuing an appeal in the NSWCCA necessitates seeking permission or leave from the court.
In practical terms, this means that before your appeal can be considered and addressed by the NSWCCA, you are required to present valid reasons to the court justifying why your case warrants a review. The court will carefully assess the grounds and merits of your appeal before deciding whether to grant you permission to proceed.
Navigating the intricacies of initiating an indictable appeal and obtaining the necessary leave to appeal can be complex. Therefore, it is advisable to engage the expertise of an experienced criminal defence lawyer who can provide guidance, prepare a compelling case for permission to appeal, and support you throughout the appeal process.
