Backed out of driveway, killed by oncoming car who was not looking at the road but at device in his car. Who is at fault?
Driver was proceeding along residential street when his breathalyzer went off. Instead of pulling over to stop & blow into it as required by his DUI probation, he attempted to use it while driving and took his eyes off the road.

Will my 4 year and 2 month old DUI effect my job opportunity?
In May of 2013 I got arrested for a DUI and had a lawyer as well. I did community service and the MADD program. I did however, hear my lawyer a few times talk about how it might just get expunged. (never have I been arrested before and I have no other criminal history). I just don't know specifically if he did. My lawyer was probono (free lawyer). I recently landed a really good job, and they are currently in the background check process for me, as I signed a release form for them yesterday that allows them to do so. I've been losing sleep over this and nearly causing myself anxiety attacks. A lot of people say I'll be fine, but I'm getting a lot of mixed advice the more I research this topic. Please help me.
