A first-time alcohol-related Missouri driving offense, such as a first-time misdemeanor DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) or MIP (Minor in Possession) conviction can be expunged (removed) from your record if the conviction occurred at least 10 years ago, and as long as there are no other alcohol-related driving charges or alcohol-related enforcement actions pending at the time of the hearing. Your application for expungement must be filed in the court where you pleaded guilty or were sentenced. Missouri DWI expungement is not an option for those who were convicted of driving a commercial motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. For more information, go to the following Missouri Department of Revenue web page http://dor.mo.gov/faq/drivers/dwi.php#q8
In some situations, an arrest can be expunged from your permanent record, but it’s very difficult to do. Contact me for more information about the requirements for removing an arrest from your criminal record.
