If you are not satisfied with the verdict, and you (and/or your attorney) believe you have sufficient grounds for an appeal, you can try appealing the verdict to the state court of appeals.

In a criminal case, the defendant can appeal a verdict of Guilty; however the government may not appeal a verdict of Not Guilty. In a civil case, both plaintiff and defendant may appeal the finding of the jury if that finding is adverse to their claims.

Prosecutors can appeal a judge's rulings, but not a jury's verdict. A verdict of "not guilty" eliminates the prosecutor's right to appeal nearly everything.

It means that you don`t agree with the verdict or sentence given to you. You appeal the verdict/sentence and it goes back to the judge, who rules on it again. When you run out of appeals,the sentence is carried out.
