Expunging a DUI Record in Colorado
As with anything concerning the law, time is of the essence, and the more time that slips by, the less likely your attorney will have all the info he or she needs to provide you with a substantial defense.
While many states across the country permit those individuals convicted of DUIs to expunge their records under certain circumstances, not all states permit individuals to expunge their records. Only in very select circumstances can a qualified Colorado DUI defense attorney expunge the record of an individual convicted of a DUI offense. For instance, juveniles convicted of DUI offenses have the opportunity to have their records expunged after certain criteria have been met and after they’ve had their attorneys file all their correct paperwork. In such cases, their records are expunged when they become adults. Adults, however, do not have the options afforded to them under the law, and chances are—unless the circumstances of their case match very specific criteria—adults convicted of a DUI will have those charges on their records for the rest of their lives. That said, however, if you’ve been convicted of a DUI, you should consult a qualified DUI defense attorney who can assess your specific case and advise you accordingly.
