According to DUI Attorney William Moore, in Broward County you can be convicted of a DUI even if you do not live in the United States. The fact is when you are visiting from another country and you are arrested for DUI charges there is a chance you can be convicted both in the United States and the country you reside in. In some cases the overseas conviction can be used against you when it comes to sentencing. Unlike some states the State of Florida does not allow you to expunge DUI convictions after a certain period of time. This means the conviction will stay on your record if you do not come forward in handling the charges.
