Appeals offer convicted defendants an opportunity to have a higher court review the process that lead to conviction in order to ensure that this process was fair to the defendant and handled in accordance with State and Federal Constitutional protections. Appeals are a powerful way to correct certain errors or miscarriages of justice committed by prosecutors, police, or criminal courts; they are not, however, a chance for a second trial.
