Does a DUI Show Up on a Background Check?

Posted by William Bly | Nov 07, 2016 | 0 Comments

If you're convicted of a DUI, it will absolutely show on your criminal background history. The reason is that in Maine you have no way of expunging your record or sealing those records from public view. It's a criminal offense, just like if you were convicted of murder. That's on your record forever. Same with a DUI. This isn't a special crime. It is a criminal offense, period, and it's a serious criminal offense. And it's gonna have potentially lifelong impact on all aspects of your life, and it's a public record if you're convicted. Your employer can find that. Your landlord can find that. Your friends and family can find that as well.
