DUI Expungement in Illinois

Chicago DUI Defense Attorney

Can a DUI be Expunged in Illinois?

Unless you win your DUI case by having it dismissed or getting a not guilty verdict, you can never expunge or seal the DUI.

Once a person has been arrested for a DUI a record of their arrest is filed with the national database of the FBI and remains on record even if you are found not guilty or the case was dismissed.

Anyone searching for such criminal records as part of a background check for employment will be able to see your record of arrest. Such a record can interfere not only with getting a new job but also with establishing credit, getting a loan or renting an apartment. To prevent such from happening, it may be possible to get such records of a DUI arrest or conviction either sealed or expunged.

If the charge was dismissed or you were found not guilty your entire DUI case can be expunged. This means all the case records are destroyed or returned to you and no longer appear on your criminal record. If you were convicted, however any other disposition for a DUI is never eligible to be expunged or sealed in Illinois.

To learn more about this process speak to a Chicago DUI lawyer at The Toney Law Firm, LLC.
