How Do You Get a DUI Expunged in Kansas?

Wednesday, August 31 2016 9:57 AM

A DUI conviction can severely disrupt your life and cause you to miss out on opportunities in the future. It will show up in your criminal record when employers are considering hiring you, when lenders are determining whether or not to give you a loan and could even make you ineligible for some forms of advanced training and certifications. So how do you get a DUI conviction expunged in Kansas?

About Expungements

An expungement clears your criminal record of a particular arrest or conviction and thereafter the information pertaining to the incident may not be disclosed, except under certain circumstances. To receive an expungement the proper conditions must be met, such as: the expungement would be in the best interests of justice; the suitable time period designated by statute has elapsed; and there are no criminal charges pending and no felony convictions within the past two years.

DUI Expungements in Kansas

Under legislation passed in Kansas effective July 2016, a driving under the influence conviction is eligible to be expunged 5 – 10 years after you’ve been released from custody or completed your probation, term or post-release supervision, whichever date is later.

To receive a DUI expungement, a motion must be filed with the court that meets one of the qualifying conditions of expungement. If your arrest and conviction is expunged from your criminal record, you will no longer need to reveal that information, except under certain circumstances. The conviction will, however, factor into your criminal history if you are ever convicted of a crime again.
