I got a DUI over 20 years ago in Michigan, can I clear it from my record? I'm asking this question in regards to possible employment opportunities in the transportation sector. I had a only one DUI over 20 years ago in Michigan, with the passage of time, and completion of all court mandated programs, AA meetings ...ect (hard to remember after 20 years) would there be any record of the DUI arrest and or conviction that would show up in a back ground check or on the National Driver Registry. If a record would exist, what would I have to do to clear it from my record in Michigan? Does a DUI have to be reported on a job application? In my view, if someone wanted to obtain a loan, they would want to know what is in their credit report. It is obvious that I’m not going for a loan, but Iam going for a job and would to know, what, if any adverse information, is or may be of record, and want the opportunity to clear and or delete information that may cause a lost employment opportunity.Shortly after I posted my question, I was able to speak with someone at the Mi. Dept of State Info Center. The person on the other end entered my name, and the only information she saw was that my MI. D.L. was expired. Being that my MI. D.L. is expired would that clear my 20 year old DUI. By the way, I have not been a MI. resident since the mid 90’s. 11/29/2007 Michigan Ruling Impacts New DUI Law - Heidi's Law Michigan Judge limits prosecution efforts to use previous drunk driving offenses allowed by Heidi's Law. A County Circuit Judge ruled that prosecutors could not apply Heidi's Law retroactively. DUI cases filed before the law took effect on January 3, 2007 are subject to only ten years of look back for previous offenses (statute of limitations is 10 years). If the statute of limitations is 10 years, how and why would the state of MI have a record of a 20 year old dui offense?
