How Does a DUI Expungement in Orange County Work?
A DUI expungement functions the same as any other expungement once you've completed your probation. Law Office of Michael L. Guisti will file a DUI expungement and petition with the Orange County court to be reviewed by the judge. If the judge grants the DUI expungement, you can withdraw your original plea, reenter a plea of "Not Guilty," and have your case dismissed.
Why Should I Have My Orange County DUI Expunged?
Chances are that you want your Orange County DUI conviction expunged for employment purposes—and maybe even for housing prospects. Once your DUI charge has been expunged, a prospective employer or rental agency cannot hold the DUI against you in hiring or rental considerations. At the end of the process, you will no longer have to disclose your DUI conviction on job and housing rental applications.
Will I Ever Have to Report my Conviction to New Jobs?
That depends on what type of job you're applying for. While you don't have to disclose it for most jobs, your expungement does not extend when applying for state licenses or teaching credentials; it's possible a state board may use your conviction against you in deciding to grant / renew your license or credential.
Can I Have My DUI Expunged Before My Probation Ends?
Not likely. Following a DUI charge, you are usually placed on 3 to 5 years of probation, though you may petition the court to terminate the DUI probation early (usually after 18 months). The reality is that most judges are reluctant to grant an early termination of probation as they want to ensure you're not driving, per terms of your probation, with any measurable alcohol in your system. Subsequently, most judges want you to serve your complete term of probation before granting the DUI expungement.
