It is my first offense and I plead guilty to the DUI. Is there anyway I can get it expunged in Georgia? I have heard many things such as I can and others saying that I cannot. I know I can receive a pardon in 5 years.. Please, mainly people who know Georgia law answer. Thank you!
Short answer is - NO. Unless the law in Georgia is changed, you cannot expunge a DUI CONVICTION. If you do receive a Pardon for the crime that still should not remove the original crime from your Georgia Criminal History. The best way to keep a DUI off of your criminal history is to FIGHT the case from the very beginning! Retain the best DUI Defense Attorney that is available to you and Fight the charge! As you are finding out, once you are convicted the DUI will remain on your criminal history for the rest of your life. I know this isn't the answer that you were looking for, but I believe it is accurate under the current Georgia law.
