(1951) Where no appeal was applied for within the time provided by this section and no writ of error was applied for or issued within time fixed by supreme court rule 1.34, the supreme court has no jurisdiction of the appeal. State v. Smith (Mo.), 242 S.W.2d 515.

(1952) Where record showed motion for new trial filed and overruled but failed to show allocution, sentence and judgment, appeal was premature and cause must be remanded.  State v. Bledsoe (Mo.), 249 S.W.2d 457; (1952) State v. Skaggs (Mo.), 248 S.W.2d 635.

(1957) Notice of appeal procedure specified by supreme court rule 28.03 has superseded this statute. State v. Amsden (Mo.), 299 S.W.2d 498.

(1984) A suspended imposition of sentence is not a final judgment for purposes of appeal. State v. Lynch (Mo. banc), 679 S.W.2d 858.

(1994) Defendant may not appeal from conviction in which imposition of sentence was suspended, because suspended imposition of sentence is not final appealable judgment as required by section.  State v. Detherage, 869 S.W.2d 293 (Mo. App. E.D.).
