Seeking a DUI expungement? Assistance is available

A fair number of Rhode Island residents have been pulled over and arrested on DUI-related charges. These individuals face potentially serious consequences, some of which can have powerful impacts on their futures. A criminal defense attorney knows that some of these people are arrested without real cause and/or that charges are filed based on faulty chemical testing. With so much on the line, it is understandable for people to want to defend themselves against any alleged DUI involvement and to seek a DUI expungement -- if necessary.

Those who have been arrested and convicted for DUI will face several long-term consequences. These typically include loss of driving privileges, fines, court ordered classes and even jail time. When all is said and done -- after fines are paid, jail sentences served and classes completed -- a DUI will remain on a person's records. There are two types of records to be concerned with, namely criminal and administrative.

Those who are seeking a DUI expungement are typically aware that making such requests, if approved, can remove these convictions from criminal records. Few, however, may realize that they generally need to make separate requests for DUIs to be removed from driving records. An experienced attorney can help achieve a DUI expungement on both files.

Fighting a DUI-related charge is never easy, regardless of whether you live in Rhode Island or elsewhere. Driving while impaired is simply not an activity courts will take lightly. If convicted of a DUI-related offense, it does not mean that conviction has to haunt you for the rest of your life. With the right help in many circumstances, it is possible to seek and successfully achieve a DUI expungement.
