Can APPEAL help?

 

Men’s cases

 

APPEAL helps men who:

 

  • have been convicted of a serious crime in a Crown Court in England & Wales (e.g. murder, serious violence or sexual offences); and
  • maintain innocence of that crime (e.g. no offence occurred, or someone else committed the offence),

 

And want to challenge their conviction at the Court of Appeal or to the CCRC.

 

Women’s cases

 

APPEAL helps women who:

 

  • have been imprisoned for minor, non-violent offences when non-custodial options might have been more appropriate;
  • are victims of domestic abuse/coercive control/exploitation and this was not adequately explored at trial;
  • have been sent to prison in circumstances where their mental health or learning difficulties were not adequately considered at trial; and/or
  • maintain innocence of the crime for which they were convicted.

 

And want to challenge their conviction or sentence at the Court of Appeal or to the CCRC.

 

If you think that your case fits in with the above categories and you are not already represented by a solicitor or a barrister, please read on for how to get in touch.
