what does it mean for background search on future jobs? will it always show that i had a felony charge for a DWI?
Without knowing more information, it is difficult to answer your question. And I am not licensed to practice law in jurisdiction. With that said, generally speaking, the first conviction is a misdemeanor. It is only subsequent convictions that turn this charge into a felony. In Michigan, where I am licensed to practice law a drunk driving conviction stays on your record for life and cannot be expunged. I suggest you contact a local attorney to help you further.
