Can a 8 year old DUI conviction (plead no contest), be appealed?
Hello, I am trying to get some information on an old DUI case I had back in 2007. I plead no contest to the DUI based off my lawyers recommendation. Unfortunately, 2 years ago I was arrested and accused of theft... luckily, that case was dropped and went to "nolle prosequi". Which is great, however the arrest is still on my record and shows up on internet pages. I filed to expunge the arrest of theft, but it was denied because of my DUI in 2007. I was told by my lawyer that I should look into an appeals lawyer, that could potentially research my case back in 2007 and potentially find something that would remove it from my record so I can pursue expungement of the theft arrest. She said that chances are the court will not want to fight it and just throw it out because it is so old.

If my ex got a dui and has a hardship license can he still transport the kids during his visitation weekend?
He has not had the matter resolved s of yet. And he wants to pick up the boys . it's my understanding that he cannot drive with the children in the car if he has a restricted license. am I WRONG?
That is a question you should ask the DMV. Why does it matter unless you think he is drinking when he has the children?
Is it possible to get a DUI plead to "Wet reckless" with a prior DUI outside of the 5 year look back period.
Last dui was 10 years ago. Recently, was found sleeping in my car parked car on the side of the road, refused to take any tests because I was sleeping in my car. I want to see about getting this plead down to reckless and wanted to know what the state looks at. I know my prior but anything else that might be of help?
