Criminal History Restriction/Expungement

Criminal History Restriction/Expungement

The law recently changed in Georgia to allow criminal record restriction (formally called “expungement”) in a wider array of circumstances.

For example, under the Youthful Offender Act, if you were convicted of certain misdemeanors while you were under 21 but completed your sentence and stayed out of trouble for 5 years, you may petition the court to remove the misdemeanor conviction from your criminal record.
