You have an automatic right of appeal against conviction and / or sentence. If you lose your case or the sentence imposed is too harsh and you wish to appeal then a Notice of Appeal must be lodged within 21 days of the sentence being imposed. It will be necessary to clearly state the grounds on which you want to appeal. It is also possible to appeal ‘out of time’ but reasons will need to be shown why you did not comply with the 21-day limit.
