    As the other attorneys stated, each attorney will likely charge different fees. My firm has two offices in Cobb County, offers a free consultation, and in many cases can offer a payment plan. Feel free to give us a call.

    It sounds to me like your case will be a classic swearing battle. Your neighbor will testify under oath that you came into his home and cut him with a Christmas ornament, and you will testify that you did not. As with all criminal cases, the State must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. If you have any witnesses to corroborate your alibi, you should have a very strong defense.

    If the terms of your first offender sentence have been successfully completed, and you are discharged, those charges should be sealed on the GCIC database when the discharge is applied to the GCIC criminal history; however, such information may be available through other sources, including court docket books, criminal justice agency websites, or through “third party” vendors. GCIC must receive official notification that you have successfully completed the First Offender requirements. The record is not automatically sealed based on the passage of the probation sentence.

    What is the purpose of first offenders if you will still have a record?

    If the terms of your first offender sentence have been successfully completed, and you are discharged, those charges should be sealed on the GCIC database when the discharge is applied to the GCIC criminal history; however, such information may be available through other sources, including court docket books, criminal justice agency websites, or through “third party” vendors. GCIC must receive official notification that you have successfully completed the First Offender requirements. The record is not automatically sealed based on the passage of the probation sentence.

    O.C.G.A. § 35-3-37(d) (1) allows for the expungement of arrest charges by a local law enforcement agency when certain conditions are met. If approved by appropriate prosecutor, the arrest cycle is sealed on the Georgia criminal history report by GCIC. Access to that arrest information is restricted to criminal justice agencies only.
    Dispositions of Guilty, Not Guilty, Nolo Contedre, and First Offender are not eligible for expungement under O.C.G.A. § 35-3-37.
