Is there a chance of getting a misdemenor, 1st offense DUI conviction from eight years ago, sealed from public record?
Ive lived in West Virginia all my life. In 2003, I recieved the DUI charge while attending an in-state university at the age 21. With legal counsel and representation, I attempted to fight the charge on a technicallity. After loosing the case: I immediately paid all fines; completed necesary dui classes; and got my license reinstated as soon as I could. The charge has had a negative impact on my career development after college. Currentluy, it's holding me back from recieving a significant career promotion due to my company's strict background screening policy. FY I- It's the only legal trouble ive ever encountered. If I'm unable to expunge the record; what other options are available to me? Any any insight would be greatly appreciated. Please Advise ASAP... Best Regards, J
That is normally the only option available.

Lost my license in 1996 due to a DUI manslaughter. Wanting to know how I can get it back.
Lost my License indefinitely due to DUI manslaughter. This all happened in Florida in January 1996. I have been out of prison after a little more than 9 years served. I contacted Florida DMV but was given no real answer how to get it back. I was told I was eligible to get it back. I just don't know what to do. I now live in West Virginia. Have been working since my release, even a dispatcher for the police department. Have been in no trouble since either. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
You likely need the flordia hold taken off. Contact Flordia DMV and tell them you got a DUI years ago and now you've...
Can I fight a DUI Suspension that was not turned in as a DUI. The charge was Driving on a suspended 1st offense.
I was stopped and charged with Driving on a Suspended 2nd offences in April of 2015. In August I had a hearing and the charges were dropped to Driving on a Suspended 1st offense. Now three months later, I get a notice from the West Virginia DMV stating that my license will be suspended for 1 year for DUI. While my BAC was .05 which is under the legal BAC of .08 in West Virginia there was not charge for DUI even discussed. I have talked with the arresting officer who also agreed that there was no DUI charge and that it was only driving on a suspended 1st offense that was turned in to the DMV. I attempted to explain to her that the charge was not DUI but she would not listen. I moved to Orlando Florida just after the hearing. I am just at a loss as to what I can do.
Generally speaking, DMV and court aren't the same, that's why you can be charged in one and not the other, for most...
Arrested for a DUI with a negative breathalyzer
I was driving for work (class A truck) and went through a yellow light that turned red. When the officer pulled me over he immediately asked if I had been drinking. Which I denied and explained that I was returning from Michigan. He did a field sobriety test and said I was "wobbly" on one leg which I explained I had been driving 10 hrs. I had a negative breathalyzer and he arrested me anyways, impounded the truck and was held without bond 17 hours. I demanded a blood test. I am now out on PR awaiting trial for a DUI. How is this legal and how do I proceed? What's the likelyhood of this being thrown out and can I counter sue? Since I cannot work until this is cleared up.
When you say the breathalyzer test was negative, what do you mean? Was it 0.0%? Did you give a urine sample for drugs?...
Can a officer refile a charge as a new one or does it has to be the prosecution. The charge appears with 2 different case #.
I had a DUI charge (the whole case was sketchy). .05 BAC, I was parked. I filed a complaint against the officer and he was exonerated. After almost 9 months the case got demised by the prosecution. Two weeks after, the officer, not the prosecution refiled the charges(no new evidence, he said that I violated a plea deal even though they admint that there was no plea deal). His boss sent me an email with the summons(not served since i live in another state). After i refused to go until i was served, the issued an arrest warrant.
If the case was dismissed then jeopardy had not attached (Double jeopardy means you cant be twice charged with the same...
