I got a years probation for the DUI, and a year each for erratic lane change, and following too closely.
DUI / DWI Attorney
Asker- I read your comments to the previous poster. The simple answer is yes, the lane change and following too closely tickets are criminal convictions here in Ga because they are punishable by 12 months in custody and a $1000 fine. However, the previous poster is correct- they are normally considered on regular job applications to be moving violations rather than criminal convictions. Here is the bigger problem. You have a conviction for DUI which is a much bigger deal than the other two charges. If they are not going to hire you it will be because of the DUI not because you did not list the other two charges. You have to make a decision based on what was asked on the application on how to answer the question. Sounds like you have to list the DUI. If you are on active probation, your future employer may ask about that or even dismiss you once it is discovered. These are the difficulties faced by anyone who pleads guilty to a crime of any magnitude. It is very important that you have competent counsel from an experienced criminal defense attorney before you get the conviction. I hope that helps.

I cannot answer your question, since you are, presumably, asking about filling out a questionnaire. Carefully read the question you are responding to and that should answer your question to this website. Good luck!
