Depends on the type of appeal. An appeal from a municipal court or a district court conviction to the circuit court results in a trial de novo and has the effect of nullifying the conviction in the lower court. An appeal from the Circuit court on a conviction to the Alabama court of Criminal Appeals or the Alabama Supreme Court does not nullify the conviction based strictly on the appeal.

Generally, yes. If you appeal a criminal conviction, then the sentence is stayed pending appeal. You will have to meet the conditions of the appeal bond set by the judge. Stay well.
