Nope. All you have to do is prove that you've satisfied the conditions set forth by the court (ie, you've paid your bribes, scooped your trash) so that the conviction or plea is considered "disposed of."

I've been looking at the codes and can't find anything on this...does a DUI conviction exempt you from obtaining a GFL?
No. They have not yet added "people who have been convicted of a DUI" to 16-11-130. :devil:

The closest you are going to get is 16-11-129(b)
(4) Any individual who has been hospitalized as an inpatient in any mental hospital or alcohol or drug treatment center within five years of the date of his or her application. The probate judge may require any applicant to sign a waiver authorizing any mental hospital or treatment center to inform the judge whether or not the applicant has been an inpatient in any such facility in the last five years and authorizing the superintendent of such facility to make to the judge a recommendation regarding whether a license to carry a pistol or revolver should be issued. When such a waiver is required by the probate judge, the applicant shall pay to the probate judge a fee of $3.00 for reimbursement of the cost of making such a report by the mental health hospital, alcohol or drug treatment center, or the Department of Human Resources, which the probate judge shall remit to the hospital, center, or department. The judge shall keep any such hospitalization or treatment information confidential. It shall be at the discretion of the probate judge, considering the circumstances surrounding the hospitalization and the recommendation of the superintendent of the hospital or treatment center where the individual was a patient, to issue the license or renewal license;
No hospitalization or treatment center for alcohol in the past 5 years, then it should be fine.

It could be possible someone is confusing DUI school for an alcohol treatment center. But if it was over 5 years ago it should not matter anyway.

The little course they make you do that brands everyone that ever went to an SEC game to tailgate as a drunken felonious heathen doesn't count as hospitalization, either.

Seeing how many probate courts cant even figure out that temporary renewal licenses are still a part of the law, I can see how a probate judge could confuse inpatient care at an alcohol treatment center as the same thing as DUI school. :roll:
