I completed a defensive driving program as a show of good faith. Soon after my attorney had the ticket dismissed, and the judge said the "wrong form was filled out" by the arresting officer anyway, so all chrges were dropped.
in 2006 i got a speeding ticket and a different attorney helped me get the charges reduced to $ and no points, but he mentioned he could see that I had a DUI ticket on my record.
How is this possible?
The charges were thrown out.
I have a very big job offer pending but the company will throw my name out of the mere notion of a past DUI comes up, even if its just a charge and not a conviction.
What can i do? i need this taken care of asap.
Thanks!!thanks mark i really appreciate the feedback i dont think it was a NoLo case but im not sure if i actually entered a plea either (its been a while, so my memory is fuzzy) but i do remember the judge saying the improper paperwork was filed so it was a moot point regardless (thats a rough paraphrase) is there a length of time at which driving charges are dropped from my record automatically? also, i plan on calling the attorney in the morning as well as the clerk of chatam, but how long does "its going to take a while" potentially mean? weeks? months? years?
