Tennessee DUI Expungement Laws
If the charges against you were dismissed, you were found not guilty or received a deferred disposition from the court you still need to pursue having your criminal record expunged. The information that the police and the courts have already entered into your criminal record file will remain there and will not be removed unless you take action and expunge your Tennessee DUI arrest from your criminal record.
The reason you should pursue having your criminal record expunged if you are eligible, is for example if a prospective employer performs a Tennessee background check on applicants before hiring them and the employer sees your DUI offense, even though it shows a dismissal or not guilty, it could still affect your chances of getting the job.
