    J1 visa waiver & DUI First Offense

    Advertisements



    I am doing residency on J1 visa & I am currently in the final year of training. My training will be completed on June 30, 2011. Three months ago, I received a DUI First Offense ticket ( no accident). The officer charged me with DUI refusal & DUI. I hired a lawyer & DUI refusal charges were dropped. The DUI case is still pending & as per lawyer the case will go on for 6 to 8 months.
    I informed my residency program director & about pedning DUI & he has been very supportive to this point.I also disclosed this on my state medical board renewal application & they renewed the training license based on the pending outcome.

    I have recently started interviewing for J-1 waiver jobs.

    My question is that

    Can the judge deport me, if I am found guilty?

    How do employers in US react to someone who has one DUI conviction?

    How can this affect the J-1 visa waiver application & H1 B processing?

    Is there anything I can do proactively at this point to be on the safe side ?

    Please advise !!! I am very worried to death since this happened.

    If a person were to get a second and up to a forth offense it is considered a misdemeanor traffic crime. At that level, in addition to fines a Jail sentence can and usually is imposed. Fifth Offense and up is a Felony crime.

    what happened with your DUI? did you get it plead down? i know someone who was just arrested for DUI -- should they tell the state medical board and residency program? or should they wait for the outcome of the case?
