My son was 19 when he was pulled over for DUI . It was Continued without a finding . Now at 21 he is going to trade school to become and auto mechanic . I am worried that future employers will see this in a CORY or on his Mass driving record and he will find it difficult to find work as an auto mechanic .
You don't need to worry about it showing up on a CORI check for your purposes. Only certain professions, such as teachers, law enforcement, any job working with children or the elderly, would have access to dismissed cases. However, it will stay on your driving record with the RMV forever.
The OUI will remain on his driving record, but if the terms of the CWOF have been completed, he can petition the court to seal his criminal record (CORI) so that it will not be part of a general CORI report. This can be best completed with the assistance of an attorney, since it requires appearing before a judge.
As indicated by my colleagues, he can make efforts to have this particular offense sealed from his CORI Report. However, he should contact an attorney to have the matter properly disposed of. This matter will always be on his driving record, and there is no proactive measure he could take to change that, unfortunately.
