From time to time, everyone makes a mistake. Even a responsible person can have a momentary slip in judgment. Unfortunately, this human trait can result in criminal charges. In the wake of this type of legal trouble, it may be worth wondering what steps can be taken after conviction to clear an individual's record.
It may not be hard to imagine a situation in which a young person has one too many drinks, misjudges his or her level of sobriety and gets behind the wheel of a vehicle. Of course, this could yield charges for driving under the influence of alcohol. Years after facing this offense, without facing additional legal challenges, it might seem reasonable to look into expunging the DUI conviction.
