Can anything be done about a PBJ in regards to a DUI in Maryland.
Roughly ten years ago, I received a DUI in the state of Maryland. I received a PBJ after agreeing to attend a drug/alcohol educational program. Ten years later, it is still affecting my life. I know the charge is not eligible for expungement, but I was curious as to if there is anything that can be done to potentially reduce the charge, in hopes of being able to expunge it. Any information provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.
Sorry to advise but you cannot expunge a DUI conviction even if it was removed through a PBJ disposition.
Will my Maryland license be suspended after being charged with a DWAI in New York?
I had a BAC of 0.09 which is technically a DUI in New York but being my first offense, I was able to get the charged reduced to a DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired) - technically a traffic offense and not a criminal conviction. I had legal representation in New York. My driving privileges were suspended for 90 days in NY and I attended 7 weeks of alcohol education classes, a victim impact session, and paid the fines. I was able to take the classes because I attend college in NY (I'm 21 years old). My privileges were restored. So far, it looks like the Interstate Drivers License Compact has not contacted Maryland, although it has only been a couple of months since the restoration. I don't see any reference on my MD driving record (0 points still) and I was able to renew my license with no problems. Is is likely that Maryland will fine me and suspend my license too once notified by the DLC? Will it be regarded as a DWI in Maryland, and if so, will my traffic offense be upgraded to a criminal conviction (rather than a traffic offense as in NY)?
Yes, the MVA will attempt to suspend your license here. The conviction is akin to driving while impaired here in...

How much will it roughly cost to have an attorney get my record expunged? And can the second DWI be expunged?
I am interested in getting my record expunged. I have a misdemeanor drunk in public and a DWI (probation) then I received a 2nd DWI after I had completed my probation for the 1st DWI (didn't violate probation for the 1st DWI) was found guilty for the 2ND DWI and was sentenced to 30 days in jail. these events took place nearly 10 years ago.
Unfortunately, DWIs cannot be expunged. The statute specifically precludes drinking and driving offenses from expeungement.
