Expungement under Ohio law is the term generally used to refer to the sealing of a criminal conviction. To qualify for an expungement, a person must meet the definition of first time offender under the code along with other conditions. Certain offenses are not permitted to be expunged, including an Ohio DUI.
DUI convictions are not eligible for expungement from a criminal record. Having a DUI conviction also means that any further offenses will not be able to be expunged. This is one of the collateral impacts of pleading to or being found guilty of a DUI that should be discussed with an attorney.
