Sealing DUI Charges

Las Vegas DUI Records Attorney

Having a record of a crime, for instance, a DUI (Driving under the Influence), could disrupt a life that you are currently leading. When looking for a job, the human resources department of a company could use your criminal record, such as Las Vegas DUI records, to reject you. This also goes to other types of application such as a school or a bank application. Your right to vote and other welfare services could also be put in jeopardy.

In Las Vegas and other areas of Nevada, being convicted of DUI means having a record for seven years before it becomes sealed, at least for misdemeanor charges. For felony DUI convictions, the record could be stuck on you forever. To help decrease the distress of this news, below are some insights about Las Vegas DUI records in Nevada and how you can fight them off your background.

How Long is a DUI Record Going to be in my Background?

It all depends on the conviction of your case. Like mentioned, a DUI with misdemeanor needs seven years after the time of release before it can be sealed. A misdemeanor is usually brought down for first and second DUI offenses. The least serious felony which is category E felony shares similar duration before a record is available for sealing.

Now there also are the more serious felonies such as category C and D felonies that require at least 12 years of obligatory time and the category C and D felonies which need 15 years before a record sealing is permitted. This is the general rule but there are situations when a record is required to stay and can never be sealed indefinitely such as third felony violation or a DUI causing death. Conversely, there are DUI misdemeanors that could incur you only two years of hold-up.
