I received a DUI charge on account of car accident (total loss, no injuries) in Baltimore City while still on probation (PBJ) for a DUI charge in Baltimore County, which was also due to a car accident (total loss, no 3rd party involved).

How can I gain employment in my profession of education with a STET on a docket filed on a court case from 2015?
A police pulls me over for what he says 'I was swerving,' however I realized that I was taking the wrong exit. I pulled my vehicle over to the continuing lane, without any traffic proceeding. He has me to walk a straight line and I fail because I'm nervous and need corrective foot surgery on both feet. He arrests me for dui; however, after I'm stripped search and finger printed they find out my breathalyzer reads 0.5 at the police precent. He waits, waits, and waits for someone to come to draw my blood. No one does. They allow me a phone call and someone picks me up before the hour is up to send me to commissioner's court. I get a lawyer who tells me he'll do all the talking at the court case. He pleads guilty to a "Negligent Driving Vehicle in Careless and Imprudent Manner Endangering Property, Life and Person." Case Type: Traffic I'm fined $75.00 and 2 points. Date: 07/02/2015 Points of this past July. STET inactive: October 2018 I'm unable to get employment as a teacher in Anne Arundel Co.

You need to discuss this with your lawyer. He is the one representing you in connection with your case and will be most...
