Legal Question in DUI Law in Georgia

Employment Application

I am unclear on how I am suppose to reply to an employment application question ''Have you ever been convicted of an offense against the law other than a minor traffic violation?''. In 1990 I pleaded Nolo contendere on a DUI charge. I received a fine but did not receive points on my license and did not receive any other penalties. The last time I checked (8 years ago) this showed on my driving record as a DUI and also said Nolo next to it. What does this mean and how should I respond on employment applications? Also, is there anyway to get this removed off of my record? Thanks for the help.

Re: Employment Application

You will probably need to disclose this on your application. Pleaing nolo is basically pleaing guilty without admitting guilt, and as far as DUI law is concerned, a nolo plea acts as a conviction.

There is a way to get this DUI expunged from your record. There are certain procedural steps that you will have to take to do so, and expungment is not guaranteed.
