DUI Expungements Not Available

Posted by Richard Lawson | Mar 19, 2011 | 0 Comments

In Georgia, a DUI conviction cannot be expunged from your record.  Expunged means removed or deleted.  In many cases, sometimes 20 years or more after their DUI conviction, people inquire as to whether their conviction is eligible for expungement.  Unfortunately, it is not.  In Georgia, a conviction is a conviction.  

That is why it is so important to challenge your unjust DUI charges in the beginning.  If you fight the charges and win, you will not be in the position years later of trying to get the DUI conviction expunged.  As early as possible in the DUI process, a skilled  DUI attorney should be consulted with.  Keep in mind that a plea of guilty to a DUI charge is a conviction.  To avoid a conviction the charges will either need to be dismissed, reduced to another charge, or a not guilty verdict be found at your trial.  

DUI offenses have long term consequences.  Protect your criminal history and your license.  DUI cases can be won.  Call the Law Offices of  attorney Richard Lawson today to discuss your DUI case.
