If you have ever been convicted of a DUI, you’ll know that the effect on your life is much more wide reaching than just a suspension of your driver’s license or a fine and probation. A DUI conviction can affect your ability to get a job or a promotion long after your conviction.
Many people don’t know that, if eligible, you can get your DUI conviction expunged. Expungement does not mean the conviction is completely wiped from your record. However, it will remove your conviction from your record and show a dismissal of the case instead. You will be able to answer on most job applications, except on applications to state licensing boards, that you have not been convicted of a crime.
You may be eligible for an expungement if:
a. You were placed on Court or formal probation and fulfilled the conditions of probation for the entire probationary period, or where the court determines it would be in the interest of justice.
b. You were convicted of a crime, but were not placed on probation or committed to State Prison, and one year has passed since judgment, and
c. You are not charged with any new crime or serving a sentence for another crime.
d. You have paid all fines and fees.
Don’t let your DUI disrupt your life any longer. Call Attorney Matthew C. Tabo today at The Tabo Law Firm at 916-504-2660 to determine your eligibility for an expungement.
