Dear Carmichael, David,

Thank you for your reply to my FOI request which I now seek to clarify.

I am interested in whether individuals convicted at a magistrates’ court – regardless of whether they pleaded guilty or not – for convictions arising from prosecutions for passport and document related offences applied to the Crown Courts to reverse their conviction and/or sentence?

For the years 2011 to 2020, how many such convictions were appealed to the Crown Courts by year?

For the period 2011 to 2012, how many convictions were overturned?

For the period 211 to 2012, how many sentences were quashed?

Yours

John R Campbell

Yours sincerely,

John Campbell
