    Answered . Currently not under Ga law, however there is an expungment bill pending before the Ga legislature which may help some folks clean up their past records. Check back in the summer/fall and there may be some movement on this issue.

    In the case of DUI, not even the First Offender Act can keep a conviction off of your record though.
