I was convicted of a felony DUI on February 28, 2008, committed on October 2, 2007. I was placed on probation for five years; three years suspended license. I have had my driving privileges reinstated since February 28, 2011. I have just graduated May 12, 2012 with my Bachelor of Science in Health Information Management. I have had no other contact with law enforcement. I am applying for seven months early release from my probation officers suggestion. I would like to know the rules for sealing or expunge of DUI in Idaho. Thank you for your time and advice,Valerie
Hello.Idaho law does not provide for an expungement, but rather after probation is terminated, the judge can dismiss the case. Your record will likely still reflect the charge but it will no longer show a conviction. This law outlines the judge's authority to grant the dismissal once your probation is terminated:http://legislature.idaho.gov/idstat/Title19/T19CH26SECT19-2604.htm
