Is there any legal standard by which a criminal court case in Canada could be appealed by someone unrelated to the defendant?
Recently someone I know was accused of a serious crime. He accepted a plea bargain for a lesser crime and was sentenced after a statement of facts was jointly submitted by the prosecution and defense. I feel strongly that he was railroaded through the process and that the lead prosecutor handled the case in a way that was unfair. A deal was struck and couldn't be undone by the defendant, but I wonder if an outsider could take the case to the appeal court.
