After sentencing

Many victims whose cases come to court hope that the trial will be the time when everything they’ve been through will be resolved. Whether the accused is found ‘guilty’ or ‘not guilty’, you still have to deal with the after-effects of the crime.

You may have put a lot of energy into preparing for the trial and feel exhausted, or you might feel really disappointed with the sentence the accused receives.

However you react, we’ll be there to support you after the trial if you want us to.

Both the prosecutor and the offender have the right to lodge an appeal. This means a higher court will look at the case again.
