CALIFORNIA DUI EXPUNGEMENT ATTORNEY
Clear your DUI record in Southern California including Los Angeles County, Orange County, Santa Barbara County, San Bernardino County and San Diego County.
In 2003, there were approximately 180,000 drunk driving arrests in the state of California (Criminal Justice Statistics Center). If you have been arrested for drunk driving and convicted of a DUI in Southern California, whether charged as a misdemeanor or a felony D.U.I., hire an experienced Southern California DUI Expungement lawyer who can help you clear your DUl criminal record.
DUI Attorney Thomas Wallin can help you obtain a DUI Expungement, which is the legal process of petitioning the Court to review, clear or seal your D.U.I. conviction. Under California Penal Code section 1203.4, certain initial criteria must be met before an individual can file for an Expungement.
First, you must have been granted probation, either for a misdemeanor or felony DUI charge, and;
- The conditions of probation have been fulfilled, or probation has been discharged
- All fines, fees and restitution have been paid
- Everything ordered by the Court has been fulfilled in a timely manner
- The petitioner has no new criminal cases pending
In addition to the above rules, you must not presently be serving a probation term. However, in some cases, an individual may file for an early termination of probation.
If the above rules for a DUI Expungement have been met, you will be permitted by the court to withdraw a plea of guilty or plea of no contest and enter a plea of not guilty; or, if you plead not guilty to the D.U.I. charges, the court shall set aside the verdict of guilty; and, in either case, shall dismiss the accusations or information against the you.
It’s important to note that a DUI Expungement will not completely erase your misdemeanor or felony DUI conviction. If you are arrested again for drunk driving, the Expunged DUI can still be held against you in court. In regards to your California driving privileges, a DUI Expungement will not affect any driver’s license revocation or suspension given you by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Any prior DUI conviction shall remain a conviction for DMV purposes. (Motor Vehicle Section 13555)
One valuable benefit of having your criminal record cleared of a misdemeanor or felony DUI conviction is that you can honestly state during job interviews or on employment applications for private companies that you have no criminal convictions.
When applying for many state licenses, criminal convictions must be expunged from your criminal record before you can be issued a state license. In the event you have had a DUI conviction expunged, you must still disclose the DUI conviction if a state license application asks, “Have you ever been convicted of a crime?”
However, it can still be in your best interest to obtain a DUI Expungement, as many state licensing boards look favorably upon the fact you took initiative to expunge your criminal record.
