Like any other criminal offense, a defendant convicted of DWI has the right to an appeal. There are two different types of appeal that a defendant has a right to. First, a defendant can appeal the municipal court conviction. This appeal is taken to the superior court. The superior court will review all of the evidence from the municipal court and will issue a finding of its own.
After that appeal is taken, an appeal to the appellate division can be taken. This appeal is much more formal and technical, often focusing on questions of legal interpretation.
If you have been convicted of DWI and wish to appeal the conviction, your time is limited. You generally have 20 days to appeal a municipal court conviction and 45 days to appeal to the appellate division.
