If you hold a professional license such as being a Registered Nurse and
are arrested for a DUI, your career can be greatly affected. A conviction
for a DUI is sent to the Board of Registered Nursing enforcement unit
and sanctions can be issued against your license. You can, however, have
the conviction expunged, which may help you when applying for or renewing
your license. The Board always takes into consideration any rehabilitation
that has occurred since the incident and if the matter has been reviewed
by a Judge for dismissal.
An expungement shows that you have not had any probation violations and
have successfully completed all terms of your probation. Professional
boards often take into consideration the fact that the case has been reviewed
by a judge and subsequently dismissed. If you or someone you know has
been convicted of a misdemeanor and is looking to get your case dismissed
post conviction, contact our offices today.
