Basically, I was arrested for a DUI while passing through GA. I tried to fight it by going through to pre-trial and ended settling on a plea to reckless driving. I was able to plead Nolo to the charge of reckless driving with no penalty except fine and none reporting probation after an Ach. Eval. However, my counsel said nothing of the possibility of the First Offender rule (which I would have fell under at the time and was wondering if this would have been the better outcome) for the record concealment after punishment. Can I still try to get this? I tried to pull my criminal record and it only showed the arrest and said not of the plea. Before this incident I had a number of opportunities that are now in jeopardy if not lost due to this. I'd hate for this to cost me the rest of my life.
