Learn about Criminal Records in Georgia

Authored By: Georgia Justice Project

There are two kinds of ways to deal with your criminal record in Georgia: 1) Criminal records restrictions ("expungement") and 2) pardon. Expungement is permitted only when charges are dismissed or are not prosecuted, or the individual was convicted of certain misdemeanor offenses before they were 21 years old.
