Is a DUI a conviction if you were under 18?
Yes. Your age makes no difference. It becomes a permanent record in your DMV history regardless of your age.
How long do you have to wait to get a cdl after a DUI conviction if you didnt have a cdl at the time of the conviction?
After you receive a DUI conviction, there'll be a period of time where your licence will be suspended. You'll have to wait until the end of that suspension period before you can get a CDL. However, if three years have not yet passed between your DUI conviction and present, I would advise you wait on it before upgrading your licence. The points alone from the DUI conviction will make it practically impossible for you to…
What are the prospects of obtaining employment as a CDL driver after one DUI conviction in the state of MN?
Depends on how long it's been since your DUI conviction. Within the first three years of your DUI conviction, there's pretty much no chance - the cost to insure you would be much too great. Four to five years after your conviction, you'll still experience some difficulty, and may continue to experience it up to seven years after your conviction. After seven years, it shouldn't be much of a hassle.
You can upgrade to a CDL as soon as your licence is reinstated. However, you might not want to be so hasty - for the first three years following your DUI conviction, you're untouchable - your chances of being hired as a CDL driver are... none to none. For the following two years, they're slim to none. Once five years have passed since your DUI conviction, your chances will improve, although you'll experience some bias…
Is it misconduct for an attorney to point out a missing DUI conviction to the prosecutor and the year in which to look?
What is a "missing" DUI conviction? If the conviction was on the "public record" it isn't "missing." If your current DUI case had been adjudicated based on faulty information, it is inevitable that the error would have been found - especially when your court results arrived at the DMV. Your attorney probably saved you a trip back to court to have the case re-opened and re-sentenced.
As soon as you've met all the conditions for the reinstatement of your licence after the suspension period following your DUI conviction. However, if your DUI conviction occurred in the past three years, no company is even going to think about hiring you as a CDL driver. In all honesty, you should probably pursue a different career path if your DUI conviction occurred within the past five years, and at least keep alternative career choices…
So long as you've met the requirements to have your licence reinstated, then yes. However, if your DUI occurred within the past three years, your chances of finding employment as a CDL driver are pretty much null, and the DUI conviction can continue to bear prejudice against you for employment for up to ten years after your conviction.
