Can I appeal a DUI sentence?

I don't know the sentence yet. I am waiting for the judge to decide but I am wondering if when he gives it, is that final or can that be appealed?

    It can be appealed but unless the judge goes out of bounds you will probably lose.

    If you plead guilty to the DUI case then you can't appeal the sentence. If you were found guilty after a trial then yes you can and should appeal.

    If you plead not guilty, you have the right to appeal. If you plead guilty and then file an application for leave to appeal, the higher court can decided to not hear your appeal. Make sure that you file your appeal within the required time.

    If you pled guilty to the judge, you can appeal but there is no basis for it as long as the judge sentences you within the range of punishment that is allowed.
