What can I expect since I've been charged with DUI 1st offense (aggravated, a refusal to submit to breath test.)

How long must I wait to expunge a DUI off of my juvenile record if I got it this time last year? (When I was 17).
I was charged with an adult DUI technically (I had the aggravated circumstances dropped).

I was wondering how long must I wait to get it expunged off my record so I can apply for insurance without the high DUI rates.

Does using an inhaler for asthma with the drug albuteral effect your BAC tests?
