Question:         My expungment paper work for DUI was denied by the Duluth Municipal Court, does not meet all statutory requirements, O.C.G.A. Section 35-2-37D.  What does this mean?


Answer:           If the DUI was DISMISSED it can be removed or expunged from your record if it occurred prior to July 1, 2013.  If you were convicted of DUI or the charge was reduced or changed and you were convicted of the reduced charge – the arrest and reduced charge that you were convicted of cannot be expunged from your criminal record.  The code section refers to the statutory reason that your expungment request was denied.  I hope this information has helped you.
