House Bill 799 is a bill pending in the Georgia Legislature which will allows for a DUI conviction to be expunged if the individual convicted does not violate any traffic laws for five years upon his or her arrest for DUI. Currently, there is no opportunity to expunge a DUI conviction.
This bill makes sense. Those that are convicted of a DUI but show a pattern of subsequent good driving behavior should be allowed to get their DUI conviction removed from their record. One of the worst consequences of a DUI conviction is that it follows you forever and can impact on an your employment opportunites in the future.
If you or someone you know is facing DUI charges, you need a lawyer who understands these consequences and will fight to keep your record clean. Contact the Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. to speak with an attorney today!
