Those convicted of a DWI just got a second chance!
Anyone who’s faced a DWI knows it can devastate so many areas of your life- your job, insurance, and even future opportunities. If you’re like many people who have been arrested and convicted of Driving While Intoxicated, you may think this will follow you around forever.
Now there’s hope! On September 1, 2017 you just got a second chance to turn your life around! An important law was passed that allows eligible persons-
1) To have their DWI “non-disclosed” from their record.
2) To keep this DWI blocked from employers and agencies.
This is an incredible game-changer for so many who have carried the burden of a DWI on their record. Sadly, many citizens and legal professionals aren’t even aware of this life-changing legislation.

For your information, here is a brief summary of the law:
“A person may petition to have a DWI sealed only if he/she:
Has never been convicted or placed on deferred adjudication community supervision (probation) for another offense. This does not include a traffic offense (punishable by fine only).
Has successfully completed any imposed community supervision and any term of confinement.
Has paid all fines, costs, and restitution imposed; and
The waiting period has elapsed:
2 years if the person successfully completed a period of at least six months of driving. Restricted to a motor vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock device as part of the sentence; or 5 years if there was no interlock requirement as part of the sentence.
Additionally, the court will not issue an order of nondisclosure if an attorney representing the state presents evidence sufficient to the court that demonstrates that the underlying offense, for which the order was sought, resulted in a motor vehicle accident involving another person (this includes a passenger of the defendant).”
