CRIMINAL LAW

APPEALS AND PAROLE 

APPEAL AND REVIEW

It is a fact in any legal system that a Magistrate or Judge might make a mistake.  When a Magistrate or Judge makes such an error your matter can go on review or appeal, depending on the nature of the mistake.  This includes judgements given in bail applications, a guilty verdict or even a sentence.

PAROLE

Parole in South Africa is not a straightforward process, and the eligibility of parole depends on a multitude of circumstances, including in what year a person was sentenced.  When a person becomes eligible for parole, that person is entitled to appear before a parole board.  Should the parole board not grant parole, and all the internal processes have been exhausted, the Court can then be approached to overrule the parole board
