Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
You answered the above question 3 years ago. For varying reasons, I have not followed up on the options available. My follow-up question now is, based on the above remedies (knowing that the facts and circumstances remain the same with no other incident or arrest since 1997), what would be the best course of action in your opinion? Should I use an attorney to pursue remedy under GA Code 17-8-6 (a) (2)? I don't want to spend the money, but have no idea how to make this happen otherwise. What do you think? The ultimate goal is to have a "clean" record that will not disclose a 1997 arrest (disposed due to pre-trial diversion program completion) if a background check is run. If I can't pay you for this "question", I will pay you using the bonus option. Thanks!
