My name is***** have been an attorney for 26 years and I will help you with your questions today. Before you think about suing, you need to find out what your record says and fix it if it is wrong. Can you tell me where in Georgia you pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor? I will then help you to find out what it says in your record.

Hello ?
Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

http://www.gjp.org/programs/legal-assistance/ This was a difficult question. I could not find much on such a lawsuit. I am giving you this link to the Georgia Justice Project. They do a lot of legal advocacy with helping people to clear up their criminal records. This is a big problem. I doubt that you can sue for inaccurate criminal records. Ask them since they do a lot of work in this area. I wish you luck. Sorry it took so long.

Thank you for your time and information, I would probably think it would be nearly impossible to sue Tybee but I figured I'd throw it out there , thanks for your help
Criminal Lawyer: Colleen Grady, Attorney and Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

No problem. I wish you luck
