Can My DUI Be Expunged?

Unfortunately, a drunk-driving conviction can never be expunged from one’s record.

According to MCL 780.621, a person may apply to have a conviction set aside for any crime except the following:

A conviction of a felony or an attempted felony punishable by life imprisonment
A conviction for a violation or attempted violation of criminal sexual conduct MCL 750.520c (criminal sexual conduct in the second degree), MCL 750.520d (criminal sexual conduct in the third degree), or MCL 750.520g (assault with intent to commit criminal sexual conduct)
A traffic offense

An OWI/DUI conviction is considered a traffic offense and therefore, cannot be expunged or set aside.
