    Appeal what; the expungement? Sorry no! Appeal the original conviction? Only if an appeal was filed within 30 days of said conviction.

    As for expungement; even if your state has those statutes on the books and you are granted one, jobs pertaining to government (military, law enforcement, etc), and sectors such as education, public health, medical, etc., will still show on your record and may hinder your employment search.

    Best bet is to answer any questions regarding charges/convictions truthfully and take it from there. Not always will it prevent you from employment in these sectors.
