Is it illegal/wrong to not disclose a pending DUI to a possible employer?

1 Answers. Asked on May 02nd, 2017 on DUI/DWI - South Carolina
More details to this question:
Living in SC, I have a pending DUI. I have not been convicted yet, and it may be reduced. I'm trying to find a part time job in between my full time job for extra income. The part time job is a driver position and one requirement is a "decent 10-year driving record". I have one ticket on my record currently. Is it illegal or wrong for me to not disclose my situation?

You would be well advised not to give misinformation on an application.  Rest assured that this charge is already probably on your  driving record.  Instead, hire a DUI attorney.

Report Abuse
DUI/DWI
Driving under the influence (sometimes known as driving while intoxicated/DWI or operating under the influence/OUI) can have serious legal ramifications, from the loss of your driver's license to jail time, fines and increased insurance rates. If you have a commercial driver's license, the penalties can be even more serious. If you've been charged with drunk driving, talk to a criminal defense attorney immediately. A lawyer with DUI defense experience can review the police report, breathalyzer results and other evidence, try to find weaknesses in the prosecutor's case and work tirelessly in your defense. DUI law firms can also work with clients and prosecutors on plea bargains, alternative sentences and license reinstatements.
