  1. Answered . Nowadays many employers do background checks. Even if he moves out of state, it may still show up.

    Nevertheless, as time goes on, it may become easier for him to find a job, especially since he was relatively young when it occurred.

  2. Answered . He may actually do better in state. The 1st offender law includes a section that prohibits Georgia employers from using a 1st offender case to exclude a candidate for employment.
