Having a Michigan OWI Conviction Expunged
Answer: Unfortunately in the state of Michigan, there is no ability to expunge any driving offense at this time. However, obviously, the more that people end up with drunk drivings on their record the more likely it is that influential people will do the same. Influential people can then use their clout to influence the legislature. If the legislature at some future point decides to remove the restriction on traffic-related offenses, then at that point it is possible that drunk driving would be expugnable. In Michigan, there was recently a reformation of the expungement laws to allow people to expunge certain criminal acts, even if they had had several minor offenses as a youth.
So it is possible to see a change in the expungement law. However, at this time you cannot have a case expunged. That being said, it is still possible to have the case pardoned. There is a pretty famous case from Michigan recently where a lawyer was able to convince the governor to pardon him for his drunk driving arrest many years before. Unfortunately, it is difficult to have the governor pardon every single person in the state for their drunk driving behavior; but it is something that is an available route and would bear suggesting that people consult with an attorney to see if their case could potentially be pardoned by the governor.
