Juvenile Appeals Law

When a child has been tried and feels as though the judgment was unfair, he/she has a right to appeal the decision. Juvenile Appeals are requests to review a lower court's decision by a higher court. Since appeals are not retrials, new evidence cannot be presented or introduced. The higher court just decides whether or not the lower court made a fair decision.
