Question by agua4211: Up front with employers about DUI’s??
I graduated with my M.A. recently and was coming home from a party for graduates. I didn’t plan on consuming the amount of alcohol I did. I made the terrible decision to drive home and was arrested for DUI. My first dui was 6 years ago. Now in regards to employment, shall I be up front about the two dui’s with the employer? I plan to do archival or museum work which are professional jobs and I’m sure they will do a background check. How will this affect my chances of ever obtaining employment, even if I am qualified? Any advice/suggestions? (please, no criticism as I have already received enough of it)
Of course if they ask or if it’s asked on the app I will mention it but I just wanted to know if I might as well be up front about it since they will likely find out doing the background check anyways

Answer by speakimpeccably
If your DUIs are a matter of public record, you won’t help yourself by trying to hide them. This may be an item requested on the application form; you cannot lie, and omitting the truth is another way of lying. If you have good qualifications, DUIs should not hold you back, unless they are excessive which would indicate someone who continually makes bad choices. Not a good quality in a prospective employee.

Question by Shiningami_Gurl: Sticky situation: Old DUI (about 6 years ago) and I’m returning after 6 years to the US with my baby?
Well I know it was a stupid move but I got a DUI right before I graduated University and right after that I moved to China to be a teacher and researcher. At the time of my DUI I wasn’t working, had NO money, never in trouble a day of my life and just released from 8 years in the Army…I just didn’t know what to do and when I got offered a job in China I took it. I went to the initial hearing and classes but never paid the fine because I was broke. I couldn’t go to my family for help because I just couldn’t face disappointing them…I was the only one to graduate university or do anything with my life but there really isn’t a big job market for an Anthropologist with a background in Asian studies in the US.

Now after 6 years I have to go back to the US to update my Chinese visa and will have to take my 1 yr old daughter with me. My hubby is Chinese and doesn’t have a visa yet so he can’t come with us and he’s working so I have to take her with me. I can’t afford to be arrested if I have her with me…not to mention my work is paying for my trip and I can only be gone for a week.

Can I get in and not be arrested? Or should I just stay here and find another way. I would love to go home…I miss my family and they never met my daughter or husband yet. Any suggestions would be great…any help would be even more so.
FYI I no longer drink…since then. I am completely different and other then this I still have not been in trouble. I am still very naive about this stuff and they never offered me any kind of legal counsel.

Best answer:

Answer by Nightrider
Best advice in this scenario would be to have a family member here in the States contact the Clerk of Courts that has jurisdiction on this charge. The problem here is that since you didn’t pay the fine, a warrant of arrest is sitting and waiting for you, which will be checked when you go through customs.

Bite the bullet, tell a family member what happened and see if they can find out who to pay and if by paying now, will this remove the warrant of arrest. (Some states only want the money, some want a person to stand in front of the Judge). Try to resolve this BEFORE returning to the USA.

Best of luck and I hope this is useful to you

Question by AnnabellActress: Men: if a woman has a DUI, how do you feel about it?
I got a DUI a year ago. It’s all taken care of (paid off, classes, etc.), so is now just in the past. The DUI was under horrible circumstances. Still my fault admittedly, but definitely not the norm (even the judge tried to get me out of all of it).

I just started dating an amazing man. He has a masters in architecture, and a great head on his shoulders.

He doesn’t know yet about the DUI stuff. When should I tell him? And, how do men feel about baggage like that when dating someone new?

I really like this guy, so any advice would be helpful. Thanks!!!

Best answer:

Answer by Waterdragon
it would not worry me —- as long as you did not do it again —- besides its really nothing he should know at this point —- maybe if you get married but even then maybe not —- its not baggage —- i dont get it at all — its not a big deal maybe its because im not in the us and im a lot more laid back —- things like that just mean nothing in a romantic relationship (unless of course someone makes it a practice to get drunk every time they can then thats a deal breaker)

first DUI six years ago

Best answer:

Answer by charlie j
If you have lost your licence and its a need for the employer then you will have to tell them and if the mployer is dead set you must have your licence then that is a no go zone. Otherwise i dont feel there is a need to disclose it as it isnt a refection on your work capabilities.

The only problem you may encounter is if they required a police clearence where these offences will appear they may choose to question it (although they dont really have the right to)…..but you can cross that bridge when it comes to it. They arent violence or theft related offences which are usually strongly forwned upon depending on the job :)

Good luck :)

Question by Christian Atheist: Cops -What’s the truth about “under-the-limit” DUI Probation?
DUI Sept. 08 -All fines, classes, etc. done and done.

5 years probation. My understanding is that this means that if I get pulled over with ANY alcohol in my system, even below the legal limit (.08 I’m in CA), even 1 beer, I get a 2nd DUI.

I’m now afraid to have wine with dinner, with my family. I’m now afraid to have 1 beer with a buddy after work, and drive home. It’s ridiculous. The idea is to keep people from driving drunk, not driving after a glass of wine and a meal.

“Well you don’t have to drink when you go out.” Really? The only thing worse than not being able to drink, is having to explain to people WHY you can’t drink.

What’s the real deal with this? Do you actually give people 2nd DUI’s if they’re 2 years out of a 1st offence and they’ve had 1 beer? Isn’t there a certain point where common decency and a little bit of empathy wins out?

I’m aware that much of police work is fear and intimidation, to keep people in line. Where does this fall on the reality scale of things to be followed to the letter?

Best answer:

Answer by Kelle
Well what you stated is true. No alcohol. A second DUI will put you in jail and a year’s suspension on your license.

The fact is: You are on probation. You lost the privilege of one drink when you drove drunk.

Question by Andy: Should I tell the Colorado state board of nursing about my 2nd DUI offense before I am convicted?
I received my first DUI conviction about two years ago (2007). It was a misdameanor. I passed all the background checks for school because one DUI is permissable. I just finished my first year of nursing school and was enjoying the summer until I got a second DUI on June 24, 2009. I have not been convicted yet, and probably will not be for at least a couple months. I am scheduled to take my NCLEX on July 21, and I am wondering if I should tell the board of nursing about the second DUI now, or wait until I am convicted… ADVICE PLEASSSSSSE!!!

Best answer:

Answer by Mike
I recommend that you interview several attorneys who specialize in the defense of DUI.

I recommend that you hire the attorney with the most successful experience in the defense of DUI.

You did not say what the Police said that your blood alcohol level was or how it was determined.

Most blood alcohol tests by the Police tend to be at least 50% higher than the actual blood alcohol level as determined by a reputable medical laboratory.

Unless the Police determined that your blood alcohol level was very high, it is very likely that your blood alcohol level was actually below the legal limit, even though the Police may say that your blood alcohol level was much higher.

That is why you need a very good attorney who has substantial successful experience in the defense of DUI.

Essentially your career and your livelihood is on the line here.

the Attorney fees are much less than your loss of income or the cost of changing your career.

I recommend that you start interviewing attorneys today.

Interview the attorneys as you would any job applicant. The attorneys are applying for the job of defending you against the DUI charges.

If you are represented by a good attorney with substantial successful experience in the defense of DUI your chances of an acquittal are probably very good.

If you are not represented by an attorney with substantial successful experience in the defense of DUI the chances that you will be convicted are very high.

If you are convicted, that will probably be the end of your nursing career.

I strongly recommend, hire the attorney to represent you.

Best answer:

Answer by Robert D
They might, but not immediately from the local police. But if you ever have to apply for a security clearance or , if you already have one, to have it updated, it could come up. You might someday be asked on a security application if you ever had a DUI and, whatever you do, don’t lie. Good luck.

Question by Michelle: Need some advice about picking a job…two very different jobs….very nervous!?
Please no judgement, just answers. If you’re going to be mean, don’t bother. I have an undergrad degree in psychology, a masters in elementary school counseling. I just graduated but I got a DUI…first offense, and im waiting to get my paperwork in the mail. it was a horrible mistake. I can’t work in the schools now until the DUI gets expunged and this week I got two job offers…what would you do?

1st job offer- as a preschool teacher, I won’t make very much money but its with kids, it’s close to my house, and I love kids. However the position is only for the summer until the lead teacher returns from maternity leave, then im out of a job unless something else comes open…

2nd job offer- at a methadone clinic, kinda far away, but it would be using my degree, a lot more money plus health and dental insurance. Scared to work with drug addicts because it’s out of my track in counseling but counseling all the same….

Which job would you take? Please help!

Best answer:

Answer by Amber
The 2nd one. It doesn’t end after the summer is over and seems like it would be smarter to get a job that uses your degree in preparation for when your DUI is expunged and you do want to get a elementary counseling job. Plus, it has dental and health insurance, which are both valuable.

Question by johnnyboy1369: What can I do about this DUI?
I got a dui last night. Unfortunately, I took a breathalyzer and failed. I plan on contacting an attorney but I wanted to ask on here first. They only conducted one field sobriety test. It was walking a straight line but the road was inclined. The other big issue is that I was never read my rights. I mentioned this to the officer after I was placed under arrest, brought back to the station, and booked. He said they didnt have to read me my rights. I know they are required to. Any chance this could get me off? Or reduced charges/punishment?
First of all, thank you to all the people who actually gave advice and answered my question. To the rest of you… F#%K OFF! I didnt say “I got a d.u.i. Please judge me and tell me what you think of me.” I know I messed up. Who the hell are you to tell me I have a problem and judge me? Or dare to tell me that I was actually read my rights and just dont remember because I was blacked out (rogue). Were you there? Don’t tell me what you don’t know.
