DUI PBJ and expungement in MD
So i have read about MD expungement of DUI's and I am a bit confused. 7 Total charges: 6 NOLLE PROSEQUI Charge: Article:TA Sec:21 Sub-Sec:902 Para:A2 Code: Description: (DRIVING, ATTEMPTING TO DRIVE) VEHICLE WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL PER SE Plea: GUILTY Disposition: PROBATION BEFORE JUDGEMENT with supervised Probation. Completed all requirements, fees, alcohol class, MADD, and probation. Have not reoffended. I originally read that DUI's can never be removed in MD, however on this site I found a post that says a PBJ DUI can be expunged 3 years after the disposition date. Does the guilty plea matter or change the rules? Am I still eligible for the expungement?
The expungement statute specifically prohibits expungement of DUI findings.
How can I gain employment in my profession of education with a STET on a docket filed on a court case from 2015?
A police pulls me over for what he says 'I was swerving,' however I realized that I was taking the wrong exit. I pulled my vehicle over to the continuing lane, without any traffic proceeding. He has me to walk a straight line and I fail because I'm nervous and need corrective foot surgery on both feet. He arrests me for dui; however, after I'm stripped search and finger printed they find out my breathalyzer reads 0.5 at the police precent. He waits, waits, and waits for someone to come to draw my blood. No one does. They allow me a phone call and someone picks me up before the hour is up to send me to commissioner's court. I get a lawyer who tells me he'll do all the talking at the court case. He pleads guilty to a "Negligent Driving Vehicle in Careless and Imprudent Manner Endangering Property, Life and Person." Case Type: Traffic I'm fined $75.00 and 2 points. Date: 07/02/2015 Points of this past July. STET inactive: October 2018 I'm unable to get employment as a teacher in Anne Arundel Co. Never knew I had/jave a STET on this case b/c it wasn't stated on the case summary. I've never been arrested for anything before this infraction.

How do I answer a question on a job application about a PBJ from a DUI?
I am applying for a job, the question asks " Have you ever been convicted of or plead guilty/no contest to a criminal offense?". I received a PBJ in 2010 for DUI, there are 2 different case numbers for the same incident/charge. The 1st says...plea: other, disposition: nolle prosequi, the 2nd says...plea: guilty, disposition: PBJ. How should I answer this question & why do I have 2 different case numbers with different results. Please advise.
Your situation is why I always arrange for my clients to plead not guilty, but agree to proceed on a statement of facts....
