DUI expungement, criminal records and driving records

When a person is convicted of driving under the influence in Rhode Island or elsewhere, it can create long-lasting difficulties and cause severe consequences. In certain circumstances, a criminal lawyer is able to obtain a DUI expungement for his or her client. This is a legal procedure whereby all records related to criminal charges are removed from law enforcement agencies and public records.

Typically, all crimes, except those considered violent in nature, are eligible for expungement. The judge who presided over your trial has the authority to order this in your case. Attorneys at Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLC would be able to answer any questions you might concerning the process of eligibility and/or whether this court order can be applied to your driving record as well as your criminal history record.

In effect, a person whose conviction has been expunged is able to proceed as though he or she never incurred a conviction. This is important with regard to filling out job applications or exercising civil rights and privileges. Because these situations can be complex, it is advisable to retain legal representation when navigating court proceedings. Sayer Regan & Thayer lawyers have over 25 years of experience defending clients in the Rhode Island area. We understand how important an expungement can be with regard to your future.

Without a DUI expungement, a person convicted of driving under the influence in Rhode Island can have difficulty finding future employment. He or she might face other issues and complications due to the conviction remaining on criminal and driving records. Having an attorney from Sayer Regan & Thayer, LLC by your side to act as your advocate and aggressively pursue a ruling in your favor could possibly help prevent some of those potential difficulties in the future. A wise first step in the process would be to call our office to arrange a consultation with one of our dedicated, experienced attorneys.
