It really is going to depend on the exact nature of the charges and how they were resolved. If it was a clean dismissal with expungment of the arrest, maybe. But I can see "anger management" getting flagged as a mental health exception. Without a criminal record there is nothing to...Read more »

You are considered a second offender for the 2018 conviction. However, if you get another within 10 years you are not getting the stepdown and would be a 4th and face 6 months mandatory jail. It would be a really good idea not to chance fate and take uber anytime you have a drink,
