Expungement and relief have limits in terms of how they affect your criminal record within the state judicial system. If you fall under the three strikes rules, your DUI expungement is still counted as a "strike" where applicable. If your DUI conviction did not count as a strike originally, that status remains, but any DUI conviction considered a strike under the law remains so, regardless of the status of a felony expungement or relief. These are important details to remember. If you are in violation in the future, expungements do not protect you from your state three strikes law where applicable.
