In Ohio, assuming you get convicted or plead guilty of a DUI, it will never go off your record. That’s why it’s critical to hire a very good attorney so that they can properly defend you and hopefully get you acquitted or your case dismissed before it even goes to trial, because you don’t want to get convicted because that will stay on your record in Ohio forever. Now, if you get it reduced to a reckless operation, will that reckless stay on your record forever? It will, because in Ohio, any traffic offense is not expungeable unless, for example, you get the DUI dismissed and the underlying traffic violation dismissed. Let’s say that you were acquitted or found not guilty on the DUI but the judge found you guilty of the speeding, the speeding stays on your record forever and the dismissal stays on your record forever. It’s only if you get both of them dismissed that you can get both counts expunged.
This is not child’s play. You need someone that has a knowledge, training and experience to properly fight and defend you on this case. Let the Law Offices of Steven R. Adams protect you and keep you from further embarrassment and help keep that treasured job that you worked so long and hard for.
