Customer Question

I received my first DUI in Las Vegas, 8 Feb 2012. The only other thing that is on my record is a dismissed speeding ticket in North Carolina in 2005. I am applying for a job whose head quarters are based in Connecticut. My case has not reached court and will not until May 8 of this year. Can I put I have not plead or been convicted of a felony on my Job Application?

Yes, you can state that you have not pleaded guilty or been convicted of a felony on the application, and it would be the truth.

What about punishments in Las Vegas? I have a license, I am insured. I did rear end someone and she was taken to the hospital for a checkup and released.

For a first offense, you're likely dealing with community service and a fine.
