yes

Alex J. Esq. :

Is this with private or public sector?

Customer:

public

Alex J. Esq. :

Well, you can certainly apply for the position and you would have to disclose the DUI and describe the circumstances of what happen.

Alex J. Esq. :

And then it would be up to the Board of Education and specific school as to whether to offer you employment in this position.

Customer:

OK, so there is no legal reason that I cannot work

Alex J. Esq. :

So, basically, this DUI conviction would not bar you from applying and obtaining this position, but it would be up to the discretion of the school and board of education whether to approve you for the position and they can question you on the subject of the DUI conviction.

Alex J. Esq. :

No.

Alex J. Esq. :

This would not be an absolute bar to you being employed as a teacher!

Alex J. Esq. :

Does this make sense?

Customer:

Yes. Thank you very much

Alex J. Esq. :

I wish you the best of luck.
