PROCEDURE AFTER CONVICTION IN CRIMINAL CASE


    105. A motion to set aside a verdict of guilty shall be filed within seven days after its rendition; provided, however, that such time may be extended for cause.

    In all criminal cases in which a verdict of guilty is returned, or sentence is imposed, or the case is marked "Continued for sentence", or the imposition of sentence is deferred pending appeal, or a motion to set aside the verdict is denied, all appeals relating to the action shall be deemed waived on the thirty-first day from the date on the Clerk's written notice of the Court's decision, and the Clerk shall then proceed to schedule such hearing, if any, as may be necessary to impose or carry out sentence, unless the defendant enters a notice of appeal with the Supreme Court within thirty days from the date on the Clerk's written notice of the Court's decision that aggrieves him, pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 7, and mails the number of copies provided for by the rules of the Supreme Court to the Clerk thereof, or unless the Court has otherwise ordered.
