A DUI is charged as a misdemeanor in Michigan, and any conviction of drinking and driving will show up on your criminal record. Because state laws prevent an OVI from being removed or expunged, a conviction will remain on your record for life.
While a DUI cannot be expunged, it can be prevented. Be careful to always assign a designated driver if you are going to be drinking. This and other preventative measures can help keep you from the destructive effects of a criminal conviction.
If you do happen to be arrested for DUI, take immediate action to secure the best possible defense. If you already have a conviction on record, it is even more important that you contact an experienced Oakland County DUI lawyer to fight your charges. Attorney Daniel D. Hajji has successfully represented clients against numerous charges and can provide the aggressive defense you need.
