Going to court in a few days here for an arraignment on my 2nd DUI. I was/am on court supervision for my first dui in a different county.....

Voluntarily went to rehab in January 2010. Voluntarily went to AA meetings for 1 year after rehab completed. Going on 2 years sober. Employment opportunity denied w/background check. Very distraught. Company indicated I would have the job otherwise. They replied to my Letter of Apology with, "If you can get record completely expunged, you should and reapply for this position". Driving privileges were never suspended. Secretary of State has no record.
DUI convictions cannot be expunged.
