A person who has be acquitted of a crime can not have an appeal filed against them, although the prosecutors can be filed for different charges filed against the accused. A person can not be charged with the same charge twice this will be considered double jeopardy. For example the George Zimmerman trial, George Zimmerman was acquitted on all criminal charges filed against him, but since there was such public outraged over the verdict the government tried to charge Zimmerman with other charges.
