New Jersey DUI Attorney Discusses How Long a DWI Will Stay on Your Record
As an experienced DUI Attorney I often field questions from college students wondering how long their DWI will be on their record. Let’s say you’re a student at William Paterson University here in New Jersey, and you’ve gotten a DWI. You wound up going through the system, and you wound up pleading guilty or being found guilty after trial.
The bad news is that that does not go away. It’ll stay on your driving abstract, which is your driving history, for the term that you’re driving, for as long as you drive. Even if you go out of state and get a new license, they could find that old DWI. However, within 10 years of your conviction, that DWI can be used to enhance any penalties you get in this or most any other state. You have to be careful about a DWI that’s on your record here in New Jersey or any other state.
