Beginning September 1, 2017, with the passing of House Bill 3016, there is now a way by which you may be entitled to have your prior DWI conviction sealed. There are a number of requirements that must be met and I would encourage you to contact our office for further information but, generally to be eligible you must meet the following requirements:
- 1. You must have successfully completed probation.
- 2. If so, it must have been 2 years since completion and you must have had a blood or breath test result under 0.15. If your result was over a 0.15, then you must wait 3 years.
- 3. You must have had an Interlock for 6 months. If no Interlock, then you must wait 5 years before applying.
- 4. You can not have been convicted or placed on deferred adjudication for any other criminal offense, except traffic offenses.
With all of the potentially negative consequences associated with a DWI conviction, this is a great law that gives people a second chance. If you believe you meet these requirements, you should contact us today and let us help you clear your record.
