Appeals

Anyone found guilty in Conway Springs Municipal Court has a right to appeal the conviction to the District Court of Sumner County. You have 14 days after a conviction to file a "Notice of Appeal." At the time of sentencing or at such later date as a defendant may request, the judge will set an appearance bond for the appeal. The bond will be set at an amount sufficient to secure the payment of any fines, court costs, probation fees, evaluation fees, or other costs related to the sentence imposed by the court. The appearance bond will include an additional fee payable to the Clerk of the Sumner County District Court. The appearance bond for the appeal is payable at the time a Notice of Appeal is filed. All appearance bonds for appeal from the Municipal Court will be cash bonds.

In District Court, you are entitled to a trial de novo or a whole new trial as though the Municipal Court trial had never taken place.
