Is A DUI On Your Record Holding You Back?
If a DUI charge or arrest on your criminal record is holding you back, you don’t have to accept the consequences forever. In some circumstances, it is possible to have a record expunged or sealed, essentially either deleting it or making it inaccessible to public searches.
If you are seeking to have a DUI sealed or expunged in Colorado, the attorneys at Cheney Galluzzi & Howard, LLC, are here to guide you through the process. We fight tenaciously for our clients and will do whatever we can to protect your future.
An expungement is essentially the erasing of a criminal record as if it never happened. In Colorado, expungements are only available for minor offenses. If you were convicted of drunk driving
as a minor, we can help you explore the possibility of having the record expunged. There are strict eligibility requirements, including maintaining a clean criminal record for a significant time period.
For adults, it is sometimes possible to have DUI arrest or charge sealed. This is only true if your case ended in an acquittal or dismissal of charges, or if you were arrested but not charged at all. Once your record is sealed, it will no longer show up in employment background checks and other public searches.
Whether you have a record sealed or expunged, it can serve as a significant benefit to your future goals, removing roadblocks that were holding you back from employment or educational opportunities.
