Criminal Appeal Lawyers, Glasgow

Before You Read:

The appeal processes in the Scottish Criminal Courts almost always involve statutory time limits. If you or a loved one has recently been convicted or sentenced in a Scottish Criminal Court, then these time limits will already be in effect; and, in many cases, you will only have from days to a couple of weeks to appeal. Contact Graham Walker Solicitors now to ensure that you do not miss the deadline and get comprehensive specialist advice. 

We Are Available 24/7

Graham Walker Solicitors represent individuals appealing against a decision made in relation to their cases on a daily basis. As a result, we have a wealth of experience dealing with appeals in the Scottish Criminal Appeal Courts. 

Appeals Against Conviction

Throughout a criminal trial, there are many things that could happen which could justify an appeal against your conviction, including the following:

  • That there was an insufficiency of evidence to convict you
  • That the judge or sheriff misiderected the jury on a matter of law 
  • That you were denied your right to a fail trial
  • That evidence was admitted that should not have been
  • That there is new evidence which wasn’t available that the trial
  • That there was an irregularity during the trial procedure 

It must be noted, however, that this list is not exhaustive. There are other grounds of appeal that are not included in this list and there may still be an arguable ground of appeal in your case. 

Appeals Against Sentence

Although there are many grounds for appealing against your conviction, there are only two grounds for appealing against your sentence. These are:

  • That your sentence was excessive
  • That your sentence was unlawful
