Remove a DUI From Your Driving Record
Expungement Explained by a Biloxi DUI Attorney
An expungement of your
DUI record is a request to the court to have your guilty or no contest plea
dismissed by the court. This will allow the conviction to be removed from
your record from public view, assisting many who are otherwise adversely
affected by a DUI conviction. By consulting with a
Mississippi DUI lawyer from Miller Law Firm, PLLC, we can help you determine if you qualify to
have your DUI record expunged.
When a person's employment hinges on being able to have a clean record,
especially having to do with a driving record, a DUI expungement can be
extremely important. For many employers, seeing a DUI conviction on someone's
record will automatically disqualify them as a candidate, preventing you
from reaching your career goals. Once an expungement is approved by the
courts, it will no longer appear on public records and you can legally
not list it on job application or other legal applications.
Expungement Filings in Mississippi
One must qualify for an expungement as set by Mississippi laws. Our attorneys
can petition on your behalf for an expungement if you have arrests which
did not lead to a conviction. Convictions for misdemeanors and certain
felonies may also be expunged if there are no new pending charges. Also,
if the individual has completed their sentence and probation and paid
all fines, and there have been no subsequent arrests for a certain period
of time after the conviction, then you may qualify for expungement.
It is important when filing the petition that it is presented in the correct
manner in order to improve the chances of the judge granting the expungement.
