    conviction/imposition/complicity/accomplice/recesss/remand/custody/

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    The trial resulted in conviction and imposition of a volunteer.

    conviction = a final judgment of guilty in a criminal case and the punishment that is imposed

    imposition = the act of imposing something (as a tax or an embargo)

    It was her third conviction.

    He has to file an appeal against his conviction.

    conviction = condemnation; sentence

    To call good evil, and evil good, against the conviction of their own consciences.

    conviction = an unshakable belief in something without need for proof or evidence; strong persuasion or belief; especially, the state of being convicted of sin, or by one's conscience

    He speaks from conviction.

    His story does not carry much conviction.

    She expressed her firm conviction that television was harmful to children.

    He is an internationalist by conviction.

    The actors played with conviction.

    John has the conviction that the next morning he would receive a letter.

    The co-pilot took over the conviction.

    conviction = regulating instruments

    He was tried on charges of complicity in the robbery of bank.

    complicity = guilt as an accomplice in a crime or offence; participation

    accomplice = a person who joins with another in carrying out some plan (especially an unethical or illegal plan)

    The court was in a brief recess.

    recess = a pause from doing something (as work)

    Three men charged in connection with a shooting incident were remanded in custody.

    remand = lock up or confine, in or as in a jail

    custody = the state of being held by the police; arrest (esp. in the phrases in custody, take into custody)

    They were ccused of malicious shooting.

    malicious = having the nature of or resulting from malice

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
