What is expungement?
Can my DUI arrest be expunged?
Though it would be ideal for everyone arrested for DUI to have their record expunged, not everyone is eligible. Alabama has strict laws on expungement, making it very difficult to successfully clear your record. Factors that may affect your ability to obtain an expungement include your criminal record and any injuries or deaths associated with the DUI.
The courts will greatly restrict an expungement for any individual with a previous DUI or felony conviction in the state of Alabama. Simply stated, first time offenders are much more likely to have their DUI arrest expunged than those who have previous convictions. Other issues the court will review include the type of DUI arrest. A person with a misdemeanor DUI has a much greater chance to clear their record than a person who faced felony charges.
