How to explain a criminal record when I apply for a job? What is best way to handle situation? Can record be expunged/pardoned?
September 2009, arrested for DUI. First and only criminal offense. Entered plea agreement of guilty. 12 mos probation, alcohol treatment, and fines completed. Voluntarily went to rehab in January 2010. Voluntarily went to AA meetings for 1 year after rehab completed. Going on 2 years sober. Employment opportunity denied w/background check. Very distraught. Company indicated I would have the job otherwise. They replied to my Letter of Apology with, "If you can get record completely expunged, you should and reapply for this position". Driving privileges were never suspended. Secretary of State has no record.
DUI convictions cannot be expunged.
How to find DUI records
My 6 year old son lives mostly with my ex-wife. She has been on several evening dates recently, and I have heard through the grapevine that she is driving under the influence. Obviously, I fear for my son. How can I find out if she has any DUI's?
Criminal History Records information is only available from the Illinois State Police. Information is located at their...
I was pulled over on us rt. 41 northbound by park west (it goes down to 40 mph) I was pulled over for speeding (clocked me at 74 mph). Did some field sobriety tests and blew 0.081 and was taken to the station. I was polite and admired to drinking one blue moon and at the station I blew a 0.071. Why did they check the box to suspend my license? And what are the chances I can beat this case?
I wouldn't feel comfortable giving you odds on "beating" the case without more information. Based on what you have...
DUI IN TAXES, Illinois resident
I am an IL resident. I had a DUI in IL almost 3 years ago which I was not convicted with. I got supervision. Almost a year ago I was pulled over in TX for driving under the influence. My BAC level was 0.15. The charges are still pending. I was wondering if I can bring that case to IL the state of my residence and have an IL lawyer to represent me instead of going back and forth to TX. Also, I had to install an ignition interlock device in Denton County, TX as a requirement of bond. Will my DUI from IL that got reduced to supervision be treated as a first DUI in TX and then a DUI from Taxes considered as a 2nd DUI. I have an attorney in TX but don't rely on him. Is there any way to bring that case to the state of IL? Or is it better to be held in TX?
In a word, no. Two different sovereigns and two different laws. Get chummy with your Texas lawyer.
Is dui supervision less likely after a bench trial?
I am wondering if getting the option of supervision is less likely after taking case to bench trial? I interviewed many lawyers and they all seemed to want to take it to trial. I have arraingment soon. My parents seem to think I should just try to get supervision and I somewhat agree if a bench trial means risking a dui conviction even more. I am wondering if taking it to trial is a bigger risk of getting convicted rather than supervision if we were to lose at trial? One more question is does the attorney still negotiate sentence if we lost at a bench trial? My case is with dupage states attorney which I understand is the toughest, although I have a very good dupage dui lawyer and blew under .08 Thank you for your answers!
You bring up a very interesting point, but you have an attorney already and should rely only upon the advice of your...
Question about insurance after DUI, not convicted.
Hello, I got arrested for a DUI months back and was put under court supervision (I was told that means I was not convicted), but I haven't seen my car insurance go up at all. Will they eventually? Am I supposed to notify my carrier? My license is still suspended do I need to do anything special insurance wise when getting it back at the DMV?
Your arrest would not have been visible to insurance but you got a Statutory Summary Suspension so they will know you...
