I was under the impression appellate courts rule on whether there were procedural errors, or the judge misinterpreted/misapplied the law, leading to a wrongful conviction. That, generally speaking, the appellant doesn't get a new trial to try a different defense strategy, simply because they talked themselves into a conviction the first go 'round.
