I was convicted of a DUI in California in October 2009. I applied for a record clearance in October 2012 (three years later) but it was denied because of a ticket I got in June 2012: CVC 23123(a), not using a hands-free device. (Although I was, but I was also holding my phone while driving.) However, the paperwork says that I was arrested in June 2012 (I was not) and that it was a misdemeanor (it is an infraction). Is this possibly a screw up, and if not and if my record cannot be cleared, will my license be taken away? And if not, when can I get my record cleared?The language is that I was "arrested for a misdemeanor violation of Sec. 23152(a) VC..." Is the ticket I received for not using a hands-free device, CVC 23123(a), technically an "arrest for a misdemeanor violation..." or is this a paperwork screw up? And if I do nothing will my license be taken away or does it just mean that my probation continues?
