Its most notable attractions include Bluebell Store, The Monson Family Corn Maze, and Bluebell Cemetery. Bluebell is also known for the supernatural and unexplained, including a large number of UFO sightings (largely due to its small population and number of reports, the greatest number per capita of any other area in the U.S. ) and several haunted sites. There are legends surrounding Bluebell Cemetery and a green light which is said to appear there on certain times of the year. A former chapel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across from Bluebell Park and next to Bluebell Store that was converted into a private residence decades ago is alleged to be haunted by a young boy, who can still be heard bouncing his rubber ball in what was the former coal room.

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. There is no testimony taken.
