For my job I can only have 2 moving violations on my mvr. I have 3 and I need one removed for employment
Have you already been adjudicated guilty? If so, you will not be able to have it removed from your record. The time to address it would have been before adjudication. You would only be eligible for expungement if you were not convicted of the offense. You may want to incur the expense of having a lawyer look in to more details if your are going to lose employment, but you will have a difficult, if not impossible, task ahead of you. I wish you the best.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
No, there is no process to "remove" a traffic conviction from an MVR, absent the achievement of one of two very difficult to achieve legal options: (1) the issuance of a pardon by the mayor of the municipality (assuming, in the first place, the ticket in question was entered by a municipal court; if entered by a state district court, this is not an option) or (2) the filing and the grant of a Rule 32 petition in the trial court wherein the original conviction was entered. This is usually a near impossibility, absent some highly unusual fact situation that could not be known at the time of conviction. Rule 32 petitions are designed and intended to prevent a miscarriage of justice, and not because the outcome is a burden to the defendant.
Once a traffic conviction is entered, the trial court only has 14 days to amend, vacate, alter, or otherwise change the conviction. On the 14th day following entry of judgment, the conviction becomes final and may not be set aside, even by the original court. The trial court loses jurisdiction on the 14th day to set aside a conviction. Once the clerk of the court sends the notice of conviction into ALEA, the director of public safety is required by statute to enter the notice of conviction on the licensee's MVR. See, Code section 32-6-14.
