DUI Expungement in Brea
When you have a DUI conviction, the information can be logged in two kinds of records. It can be logged in a DMV record and in a Criminal record. When you get a DUI expungement, you are effectively taking away the criminal record from the eyes of the general public.
In essence, the DUI expungement allows the criminal record to be deleted from public databases so that employers, landlords and anyone else who is not in law enforcement, is not able to find the criminal record concerning the DUI conviction.
Additionally, if you have a DUI conviction and manage to get a DUI expungement for it, you can swear under oath, without fear of committing perjury, that you have never been convicted of the DUI.How Do You Qualify for DUI Expungement?
Normally, you qualify for DUI expungement if the following conditions are met:
- You haven't served any time in state prison
- You have completed all the terms of your sentence including probation
- You don’t have any pending criminal cases and you haven't committed a subsequent crime and
- It has been at least one year since the date of your conviction
If any of these conditions have not been met, then you do not qualify for DUI expungement.How to Get a DUI Expungement?
