WILL A DWI CONVICTION EVER COME OFF MY RECORD?
Attorney Tyson Mutrux describes in this video DWI convictions and whether they will ever come off your record.
HI, Tyson Mutrux here today with the Mutrux Law Firm and today I’m answering the question of, “How long does a DWI stay on my record?”
Now this is kind of tricky question because you need to look at both sides of it. There’s the civil case, which is your driver’s license, and there’s the criminal case. So those are two different records that were talking about. With the criminal case, if you have no other convictions, ever, after ten years you can actually get that expunged in Missouri. Obviously it’s going to be on your record for those ten years but after those ten years, once you’ve filed that expungement and a judge has signed off on it, it goes away.
Now, the bad part of that is, let’s say an administrative hearing in the State of Missouri suspended your license, that’s going to stay on your driving record. That’s not going to go away. Even if you get an expungement it’s still going to stay on there. That’s why a lot of employers ask for a driving record and they don’t spend the money on a criminal history because they want to know that.
Hopefully this answered your question of how long this will stay on your record. For more information about that, go to www.mutruxlaw.com, or www.winningdefenselawyer.com, or call us at 888-550-4026. Thanks a lot and have a great day.
