Can my DUI arrest be erased from my criminal record?
In Georgia, DUI can only be erased or expunged if it has been dismissed. If you are convicted, the DUI charge were made in your criminal record forever. Also note that if your DUI is reduced to a lesser charge, your criminal history will reflect that you were originally arrested for DUI, but that the charge was reduced.
Additionally, several specific procedural steps must be taken have a charge expunged from your record. If you qualify for expungement (in other words, if your DUI is dismissed) is you should seek the help of an experienced Atlanta DUI attorney for assistance.
