Can I Appeal a Misdemeanor Conviction in DC?

Shawn Sukumar: Yes. The D.C. Court of Appeals will hear appeals for any criminal convictions, misdemeanor or felony. Everyone who’s been convicted after a trial is entitled to an appeal. Typically, people who have been convicted after a guilty plea are not entitled to an appeal except in the situation where the judge has given an illegal sentence.
