Dear JACUSTOMER - If you have a DUI conviction that would be considered as a second offense and it is unlikely you can get anything expunged. The expungement laws are designed to remove single convictions from one's record but once you have multiple convictions your only recourse is to obtain a pardon from the Governor. It's not the seat belt that is the problem but a DUI cannot be expunged and creates a second crime.
I completely understand. Obviously I don't make the laws and I gave up preaching to young people about the consequences of their actions a long time ago. You would be surprised at how often pardons are given. Actually the DUI is far more of a problem than the pot charge. Many times the minor drug convictions can be removed but DUIs are considered very serious so I can't predict your chances. You won't know until you try.
