Can I have a "2nd dui in 2 yrs" conviction amended/corrected?
Charged with a second dui within 2 yrs (and pled guilty on a plea agreement. The offense took place June 2014. During a chemical dependency assessment, realized the prior dui charge took place Dec, 2010 (not within 2 yrs). Somehow nobody, including myself, caught this. Can this be amended/corrected?
If this happened in MN the look back period is 10 years not 2. Thus, the result would be the same.

Sounds like you need to retain an experienced criminal defense/DUI Attorney without further delay.
Does Minnesota put Underage Drinking tickets on your driving record?
Not drinking and driving, just a couple underages (age(s) 19-20) by a dumb college kid. License was never suspended. Graduated now and asking because I have to submit to a driver's insurability assessment for a job. Offenses were civil infractions in the state of Wisconsin a couple years back, so not sure if MN knows about it or not, and if they do what do they do with it record-wise?
Why don't you just go to the DMV and request your history to find out? I am not licensed in Minnesota, but in...
