Are There Ever Any Convictions That Cannot Be Appealed?
Even if you pled guilty and signed paperwork saying that you waived your right to appeal, you can appeal on certain narrow grounds. One claim your lawyer might raise is that you were mentally impaired or intoxicated on drugs or alcohol at the time you pled guilty. That’s very difficult to prove, though.
A more common way to appeal a guilty plea is to raise an involuntary plea claim in a post-conviction writ of habeas corpus. An involuntary plea claim basically argues that your lawyer didn’t advise you of certain consequences of your guilty plea that, had you known about them, you would not have pled guilty.
