If you find yourself arrested for DUI in Forsyth County, the arrest will show up on your record. But citizens are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. A DUI charge is not a DUI conviction. These charges can be beat. Forsyth County government attorneys are required to prove that a driver is guilty of DUI beyond a reasonable doubt in order to convict. This is a difficult undertaking.
All too often, people charged with DUI plead guilty to it. They often don't realize that this stays on their record forever. People often plead guilty to DUI and then years later try to get their convictions expunged. Unfortunately, a DUI conviction cannot be expunged.
Expungement is the process of having a DUI or criminal conviction deleted from your criminal history and driving record. Convictions for DUI can have long term affects for your work an personal life. After you enter a guilty plea, it cannot be undone and you have a DUI conviction on your record. Call Forsyth County DUI lawyer Richard Lawson today for a free consultation.
