I am currently in school to become a lineman and will have to get my class a CDL to get a job, but just today I heard that you are permanently disqualified from obtaining a class A if you have had 2 DUI's in your life. I got a DUI 6 years ago, and another one 4 years ago but since then I have made major life changes. The first DUI was reduced to a careless driving and the second one was reduced to a misdemeanor 4th degree DUI.

Can a nearly 20 year old misdemeanor probation violation warrant (DUI) be quashed in Ramsey County, Minnesota?
From 1998 I have a couple warrants from not completing probation on two DUI'S. I moved out of state to get away from bad influences and have since graduated college and have a career, family, etc. I would like to have this taken care of if possible. I've talked with a few attorneys and they say I must return to MN and do up to 1 year in jail. I'm not going to do that. Ever. But I do have money to pay the courts, if it pleases the court. I'm seeking an attorney to represent me in absentia for a motion to quash, if possible. Even if the attorney can negotiate with the prosecutors office to see if they will work with a large fine or something, I'd be interested. Any recommendations (other than return to MN and do you time, etc)?
You may be able to negotiate a resolution like that with the prosecutor through your attorney but the devil is in the...
