DUII often comes with related traffic crimes. Related traffic crimes include reckless driving, reckless endangering, hit and run, criminal mischief, and attempt to elude. They are misdemeanors or felonies depending on facts and the amount of any damage. Related traffic crime convictions all carry potential license suspension. They all carry potential lifetime non-expungeability.
DUII-related traffic crimes should be negotiated as part of a package deal. The goal is a global settlement that avoids license suspension by dismissing, reducing, or relabeling related traffic crimes. The goal is to avoid a non- expungeable criminal record.
