Julian is a village in Nemaha County, Nebraska, United States. The population was 63 at the 2000 census. Julian was settled by French settlers. It was named for Julian Bahuaud, an early settler from France. The first name was chosen as no one seemed to be able to pronounce his last name.

What is criminal appeals law?

A criminal appeal is a formal request to rehear a case that has already been decided -- a request that a new court reconsider the decision of the first court. When one or both sides of a case that has already been decided think there was a mistake made at trial, they can file an appeal. An appeal is entirely different than a jury trial.
