dui without negligence... the sentence is part of a plea bargain. He was told that if anyone was worthy of a probational offer it would be him. Things didn't exactly work out accordingly in the end. In any case, he is highly educated. He has a bachelors and mba both from top universities. Do you think it will be possible for him to get back into the corporate world? It seems that once a person has a felony, they are incapable of holding certain licenses and jobs. Thank you very much for your time.
The first thing that your friend can do is to check to see if any certifications he held were affected by his conviction. If so, what does he need to do to have them reinstated if possible. Often ex-offenders and felons looking for jobs need a little legal assistance. He should speak with an attorney to see if expungement is an option in your state. He should also look into a Certificate of Rehabilitation. A Certificate of Rehabilitation is a court order, which declares that a person who has been convicted of a felony is rehabilitated. If a petition for a Certificate of Rehabilitation is granted, it is forwarded to the Governor by the granting court and constitutes an application for a pardon.
I hope this helps.
