NSWCCA stands for the New South Wales Court of Criminal
Appeal. It is the highest court in the state of New South Wales (NSW), that
deals exclusively with criminal matters. The NSWCCA hears appeals against
criminal convictions and sentences from the District Court of NSW and the
Supreme Court of NSW.
The NSWCCA is made up of a panel of three judges who are
appointed by the Governor of NSW on the recommendation of the Attorney General.
The judges are selected from the pool of judges who sit on the Supreme Court of
When an appeal is lodged with the NSWCCA, the panel of
judges will review the evidence presented in the original trial and consider
whether any errors were made by the trial judge or jury. If the NSWCCA finds
that an error was made that may have affected the outcome of the trial, it may
order a retrial or overturn the conviction or sentence.
Appeals to the NSWCCA can be made on a variety of grounds,
including errors of law or fact, new evidence, or the severity or leniency of a
sentence. However, it is important to note that the NSWCCA will generally only
consider appeals where there is a reasonable prospect of success.
Overall, the NSWCCA plays an important role in ensuring that
criminal trials in NSW are conducted fairly and justly, and that errors or
miscarriages of justice are corrected.
