Often, years after a conviction, people attempt to get the DUI expunged, or deleted, from their criminal history. Unfortunately, this cannot be done in the state of Georgia. If you are charged with a DUI, and you enter a guilty plea or are convicted by a jury, then the conviction goes on your record and cannot be removed. A DUI can make a person ineligible for certain jobs or licenses. That is why it is imperative that if you find yourself faced with criminal allegations, you challenge the case and attempt to get the best possible outcome. A plea bargain may be quicker and easier, but if the charges are not fair, then the case should be contested. You don't want to have the stigma of a DUI on your record forever as you do not know what the future may hold.
