HOLMES JA:  The applicant seeks an extension of time within which to appeal against his conviction, on 18th of March 2009, of two counts of unlawful carnal knowledge, five counts of indecent treatment and one count of maintaining a sexual relationship with a child under the age of 16 years.  This Court has, however, previously considered his appeal against those convictions on the merits: see R v Marshall [2010] QCA 43.  That appeal was argued on a number of grounds, relating to alleged wrongful admission of evidence, a refusal to permit further examination of the complainant and failure to give a Longman direction.  It was dismissed, all members of the Court being in agreement.  The applicant complains that senior counsel appearing for him on that appeal did not follow his instructions and did not argue certain points which he now wishes to raise. 

 

This Court has consistently held that once it has heard and determined an appeal under section 668D of the Criminal Code 1899 (Qld) on the merits, the right of appeal conferred by that section is exhausted: see R v Nudd [2007] QCA 40 and the line of authorities referred to therein.  That exhaustion of the right of appeal is not dependent on whether the points to be raised are new or were recognised by the appellant at the time of the previous appeal, nor on whether the representation at the previous appeal was satisfactory or unsatisfactory.

 

The application for an extension of time in which to lodge a further appeal against the applicant’s conviction should be refused, since this Court lacks any jurisdiction to hear such an appeal.

 

FRASER JA:  I agree.

 

MULLINS J:  I agree.

 

HOLMES JA:  The application for an extension of time is refused.
