My son lost his license years and spent 14 months

Customer Question
My son lost his license...
My son lost his license for 13 years and spent 14 months in jail for 5 DUI's He has about 4 more years till he can get his license back.
He knows this is all his own fault but the problem is he can not get a job because he has no license and now has bad credit for his student loans he has and can not afford to pay them back because he only does odd jobs.
He has two bachelor degrees and they want experience to give him a job but no one will give him a chance.
When all this happened he was going through a bad time of depression and want to die, I know that is no excuse for all the drinking. Only by the grace of God he did not hurt anyone or himself.
Is there anything he can do to make his report be better if an employer checks on him
Thank you

I am sorry to hear about this situation.
I am not quite sure I understand the question:
"Is there anything he can do to make his report be better if an employer checks on him"
Are you basically asking what else he can do to show the employer that he is committed to sobriety?
Or, something else?
This is not an answer, but an Information Request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
