Q: I plead guilty to a DUI in 2011... can I have it expunged now? or do I have to wait 10 years since the law changed?

Just curious because I believe the law was previously 5 years for KY and it changed in 2016 in the midst of me waiting 5 years.

Depends on the county where the DUI is but HiP on a 3rd is unlikely. Hire a competent criminal defense attorney, aggressively defend the DUI, and if you can get it amended or favorably resolved that will help tremendously with your immigration case.

You may want to see if there is any reason for the change. If you didn’t agree to it, you may want to ask the court to set aside the plea agreement and inquire into the unauthorized ple. Consult a lawyer before you do anything.
