My question involves criminal law for the state of: California.
I got a DUI 5 years ago. I have the ticket and a officers report stating that the DUI would come off my record within four years. Now the law has changed to ten years. Am I able to fight this and have it taken off now? I mean you can't just change laws like that and have it effect the person in the pre law right? Say if someone was sent to jail for drunk driving for 2 years then 2 years go by and hey go OOOO just kidding the law changed now its 10years... SO thats my question. Can I fight this? How do I go about doing so.
I forgot to mention, I haven't got any tickets since then or had any problems with the law period. So I would think I have a good chance to fight it?
