The story of Stormy Keffeler is a reminder that often the consequences to a DUI conviction are not always readily apparent. Some people mistakenly believe that the DUI conviction will not have any consequences beyond the DUI Penalty that is imposed by virtue of the conviction. The story of Stormy Keffeler reminds us that the consequences can stretch beyond the DUI Penalty that is imposed in the immediate sense and extend to other areas of a person’s life, such as their employment or their ability to obtain future employment, insurance or even housing if the community has a background check condition prior to being approved to live in certain housing communities. This is particularly the case in apartment complexes and other places of the like. This is the reason it is important to know what your employer requires as it relates to self-reporting crimes, such as a DUI charge and/or conviction. Some people are required to report it and do not even know it.
