Can a DUI be considered a felony? I know nothing is ever a felony misdemeanor, because something is either a felony or a misdemeanor, and can't be both.
I had a background check for employment purposes and didn't get the position because of a felony conviction in my record. I told the employer I had a DUI 10 years ago and I was sentenced to a weekend of community service, so I thought it was a misdemeanor charge and not a felony on my record.
The DUI was not part of an accident or injury. If it's a felony I'll need to hire a lawyer to get this expunged off my record.
