What is an appeal?

Sometimes, an accused person is not satisfied with the outcome of a particular trial. In some cases, the person can apply for an appeal at a higher court. The court will review the trial’s fairness and correctness and check the way it was conducted by the court. A person can either make a conviction appeal, which questions the decision of the court in finding the person guilty or not guilty, or a sentence appeal, which questions the punishment given by the court and whether the type or the length of punishment was fair.
