Granted. Everybody has said their thing, it seems, it can only get worse.
Suggestions, all just IMHO:
Regarding a potential appeals/pardon process, I don't think anything special is needed. You already have a process to decide whatever you want via the general rule change votes. I get why you saw it was required to do have a special process for determining actual punishment (need to be quick, nulla poena sine lege), but none of the reasons apply to reducing a sentence.
Any reduced sentence should be on probation.
You will not find an unquestionably unbiased jury. And neither do you have to, nor should you. The sentence is "We don't want to play with you in this event for a while", not prison. It makes sense that the people making the decision are those actually affected by the outcome.
