Hello please provide more details of what happened. What was he found guilty of initially?
I'm afraid that there is no appeal from this decision.
The Crown do not have a right of appeal from an adverse decision alone. There has to be an error in law and simply disbelieving one side of believing another is not a wrong decision.
I wouldn't place too much store in the original conviction. It probably was flawed. I used to go to Camberwell Green Magistrates all the time in the days when I still did Magistrates Court work and you would not believe the erroneous convictions. Magistrates are not a very respected tribunal for good reason.
Proper jurors are much more reliable.
