Can you get a good job if convicted of a dui as a teen?
I was convicted of a dui at only 19 years old. I have definitely learned my lesson and plan on going back to school in August. I had to take this past year off due to not having a license.

I plan on becoming a certified public accountant I just don't know if I will be able to now that I have this on my record.
