Yes. This is called ‘Bail Pending Appeal’. Similar to a regular bail hearing prior to trial, there are criteria that the Court will assess in determining whether you are eligible for bail pending appeal. These are prescribed within s. 679 of the Criminal Code and include:
- the appeal or application for leave to appeal is not frivolous;
- the appellant will surrender themselves into custody in accordance with the terms of the order; and
- their detention is not necessary in the public interest.
