Criminal Trial Lawyer in Mississauga, Ontario
Law is just or unjust. Law is reasoning. Error in judgment happens. That’s why appellate courts are in place. An appeal can be grounded based upon an unreasonable verdict (unsupported by evidence), error in law (wrong decision in law) or a miscarriage of justice (unfairness etcetera). It is wise to consult for an appeal, soon after a conviction is registered, even though sentencing is postponed or scheduled on a different date. If the prosecution has sought a custodial sentence, then preparation of an appeal and application for bail pending appeal, in advance, for its hearing before the appellate court the same day when a sentence is ruled, can have real benefits to one’s liberty.
