I received a DWI in 2001 in Ohio and I've never reoffended. I pled no contest to the DWI charge. I've been filling out job applications recently, and what I find most unsettling is that this will seem to follow me around indefinitely. To me, this is wrong when other misdemeanors (and even felonies!) can be sealed/expunged on first offense, but apparently not DWIs???!!!! Is there any legislation or grass-roots movement in the works to give someone like me a second chance, especially after so long without reoffending? Is there any other recourse that someone like me can try?
