Ventura DUI Expungement
If you have been convicted or pled guilty in a Ventura DUI case, your criminal conviction has no doubt impacted your personal life in many ways, and it may also have prevented you from obtaining a job. You probably wish that you could just pretend it never happened.
With an expungement, in many ways, you can. Individuals convicted of a misdemeanor DUI in Ventura generally receive three to five years of probation in addition to fines, fees, jail time, and other penalties. Once you serve your probation, you become immediately eligible to seek expungement of your Ventura DUI conviction. An expungement results in your guilty plea or conviction being reversed, allowing you to legally say that you have never been convicted of a Ventura DUI.
Ventura DUI Attorney for Expungement of Prior Convictions
At The Law Offices of David Lehr, in addition to representing clients in DMV hearings and court cases for Ventura DUIs, we also represent individuals seeking expungement of their past DUI convictions. We are intimately familiar with the Ventura county DUI court process, and we can help you efficiently prepare and present your case for expungement.
Expungement of Ventura DUI Convictions
In California, a Ventura DUI conviction stays on your criminal record indefinitely, and counts as a prior DUI for ten years for purposes of penalties for multiple DUIs and possible felony DUI charges. However, provided that you received probation, completed all of the terms of your probation successfully, and were not arrested for any other offenses during the probationary period, it is possible to have your Ventura DUI conviction expunged as soon as your probation ends.
When you have your Ventura DUI conviction expunged:
- Your Ventura DUI will not show up when private companies run background checks;
- You will legally be allowed to say that you have not been convicted of a DUI;
- Your expunged DUI conviction will not count toward the enhanced penalties for multiple DUIs or toward the calculation for a felony DUI based on multiple prior convictions.
Your Ventura DUI will, however, still show up in background checks performed by federal agencies. Nonetheless, obtaining an expungement is an important step to help enhance your employment prospects and minimize the potential consequences of a future DUI.
