How to explain a criminal record when I apply for a job? What is best way to handle situation? Can record be expunged/pardoned?
September 2009, arrested for DUI. First and only criminal offense. Entered plea agreement of guilty. 12 mos probation, alcohol treatment, and fines completed. 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.
I GOT MY FIRST ZERO TOLORENCE WHEN I WAS 16 AND THE SECOND ONE WHEN I WAS 17 MY DUI WHEN I WAS 20 AND ITS MARKED AS FIRST OFFENCE IM 22 NOW
If your base privileges are intact and unrestricted you probably can. Employment is, however unlikely.

What is the likely punishment of being convicted in Illinois of first time DUI? What does revocation entail?
I am wondering about actually being convicted after being found guilty at trial, not court supervision. I know all situations are different but I'm looking for a rough estimate (no crash, .11 BAC, cooperative, no child in car, first time offender, previously perfect driving record, rarely ever drink). Does a revocation mean you cannot drive at all even with an MDDP/BAIID? Would a one year revocation start at the time of the sentencing, or at the time of the start of the summary suspension? It seems like the revocation is the biggest difference between court supervision and a conviction, is this accurate? If you believed that one of your clients had a 50/50 chance at trial, would you advise them to accept supervision?
Potential of 364 days and or a fine of $2500. Jail not likely for a first offense unless there are bad facts. You may...
