Q: 

how long til it goes away?

A:  It's not clear whether the DUI conviction happened in AL or TN but it doesn't actually matter. Neither state allows convictions to be expunged. You should also be aware that even if an expungment were allowed, it would not hide the conviction from law enforcement. They'd still know about it. Whether or not that disqualifies you for a position in law enforcement depends upon state law and the particular department. You say that you "beat" the first one. How exactly did you "beat" the charge? Was it dismissed, nol prossed, an aquittal at trial? Was it a municipal case that was tossed or did you plead guilty at the municipal level and then have the case resolved at the circuit court...

Don''t tell us ''cause we''d just get upset. You didn''t say if you were required to register as a sex offender. Probably because they didn''t charge you with that type of crime, if that is the case. If you do have that on your record, it is unlikely to be expunged (if it was a sex offense). But if the provisions in your sentence allow it, then you''re probably going to be clear. One thing you''ll have to do, however, is to make sure that all records are expunged, which includes the State and FBI. If you were fingerprinted both will have your record. If not, they probably don''t. You certainly can find a job in...
