Question: Can I appeal an OWI conviction in Wisconsin?

Answer: Yes, absolutely. There are differences in appealing different kinds of OWI convictions in Wisconsin. A first offense OWI in Wisconsin is a civil violation, and so the appellate process is a little bit different than under a criminal— which is an OWI second or higher—or other types of criminal offenses. But, again, there is always an appellate route and appellate relief available, whether it is a civil or criminal case.
