Can someone explain to me what it means exactly when someone is arrested for "judgment"? I googled and got this:

"The postponement or stay of an official decision of a court, or the refusal to render such a determination, after a verdict has been reached in an action at law or a criminal prosecution, because some defect appears on the face of the record that, if a decision is made, would make it erroneous or reversible." 

But, I can't exactly wrap my head around exactly what it means.
