Appeal to the crown court

There is a right of appeal against sentence or conviction or both. In addition there is a right of appeal on a point of law.

There is a right of appeal to the Crown Court on sentence or conviction or both. 

This right is only available to the defence. 

Permission to appeal is not required. The appeal is heard by a judge and two magistrates and they rehear the whole case.  There is no further right of appeal against the decision of the Crown Court except on a point of law. Such an appeal would go to the Queen’s Bench Divisional Court by way of case stated (Appeal By Way Of Case Stated) which is in effect the second type of appeal available to the defendant.
