My kmart store closed. I worked there for over 9 years. I am looking for a driving job now. I need to know if my DUI is still on record.
Check with the Clerk of Court in the county where you were convicted. It'll likely be accessible for free on the internet.
Follow Mr. Golburgh's advice. I think that you will find that DUIS don't disappear
Every case and situation is different and my answers will vary greatly depending on the specific facts of each one. My answers shouldn't be considered complete answers to each question and an answer doesn't establish an attorney/client relationship. Always seek the advice of your own attorney. I am licensed only in the State of Florida and in Federal courts. Florida Bar #337821, Admitted 1982.
DUIs are always on your record.

Punch in your info and you'll see it.
Wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
If you received a DUI conviction - that does not come off your record. If you accepted a plea to a DUI or were convicted at trial- by statute, DUIs are by conviction only. That means that you would not have a "withheld adjudication" for a DUI. If your DUI was dropped or reduced to another charge, then it is possible you can work with an attorney to get the lesser charge or arrest only either expunged or sealed. If you have any convictions in Florida, or if you have already expunged an arrest - you may not expunge or seal. Criminal records are NOT like credit reports; nothing "falls off" after a certain period of time. So, check with a criminal defense attorney to see if what is on your record is eligible for expunging or sealing. Hope I have been helpful and best of luck.
All information is provided as general legal information; no attorney-client relationship exists.
Yes, it is, and if it was within the last 9 years, the contents of the court file may be accessible via the internet for you or anyone else to see. Did you possibly complete a diversionary program, at the end of which the charge was dropped/dismissed? If so, you were not convicted. Good luck.
This Q&A forum is no substitute for a personalized, private conversation concerning your situation. This response is a general answer to a question posed by an unidentified person. It is not intended to and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
You can go any local clerk of court and order a copy of your driving record. The DUI should be listed on your driving record. The DUI will be on your driving and criminal record unless it accidentally not listed due to an improper spelling of your name or some other reason.
