If such a violation is found to have occurred, appellant must be granted a new trial. If such violation is not found to have occurred, judgment of sentence shall be reinstated. Appellant and the Commonwealth may appeal from the decision of the evidentiary court. Cf. Commonwealth v. Polsky, 485 Pa. 360, 402 A.2d 1003 (1979).
