How long does a DUI conviction record last?

Anyone convicted of DUI in South Carolina either by pleading guilty or after a trial will have this recorded on their criminal record. This record will be available for review by current and future employers as well as members of the general public.

The conviction will permanently remain on your criminal record. Unlike most other crimes even first offense DUI cases are not eligible for the expungement process. A DUI conviction will also serve to enhance any future DUI arrest for ten years - meaning you could be face increased penalties for DUI 2nd, DUI 3rd or Felony DUI.

If you have been charged with DUI and you want to avoid the difficulty and embarrassment that comes with a conviction it is imperative that you retain a competent DUI attorney as soon as possible.
