I was 19 at the time (1995-ish) and it was my 2nd dui (both in Connecticut). My record has been clean since. When I applied for naturalization for US citizenship (in 2008) I disclosed the arrest, but could not provide additional records because the police station where I was arrested nor the main place where all records have been since transferred to, could not produce anything. It's as if it never happened.
The problem I have is that LSAC.org requires copies of the dispositions (from their application page):
If yes, enclose a copy of all court and/or police records confirming the disposition of the case, along with an essay fully explaining the circumstances (see Attachments section). Your file will remain incomplete until we receive the required documentation.
If I can't produce these records, then the file stays open. I could give them approximate dates but that's about all that I have on it. I'm afraid that if I disclose it, my application will not get sent to my prospective schools. If I don't disclose it, then somehow even though these records don't exist, the schools or the BAR will find out about it and I will be in a world of trouble. I don't know what to do.
Um, have you considered including an addendum (submitting it as the documentation) explaining the situation? OR , you can go to the police station and get something signed by someone working there (possibly a "higher up") stating there is no available documentation of your case. OR possibly both...
