What can I do if my paper work from sentencing does not have my correct name or social security number?

Georgia |

The paper work my probation officer gave me does not have my correct middle name OR my social security number. The offense was in Monterey, California. I currently reside in Georgia.

  1. You can file a motion with the court to correct a scrivner's error. Regarless, if you were arrested, it will attach to your fingerprints through a filing system called Offender Based Information Tracking System (OBITS). The court, not the GBI, would need to correct the error.
