The Criminal Cases Review Commission is an independent body, which can investigate suspected miscarriages of justice regarding convictions in Magistrates’ Courts or Crown Courts – including irregularities in sentencing – and advise on whether an appeal might be possible.
The Criminal Cases review Commission is able to consider miscarriages of justice in courts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland – and although independent, is sponsored by the Ministry of Justice.
The commission can also look into miscarriages of justice in the Court Martial and Service Civilian Court.
Duncan Lewis criminal appeals solicitors can advise on making an application to the Criminal Cases Review Commission for review of conviction or sentencing, including whole life terms and cases where there may be evidence that was not presented to the court during a trial.
The commission will advise on whether to send a case to appeal again, if there is evidence a miscarriage of justice has occurred.
