My question involves criminal records for the state of: Ga I have looked into the laws for expungement in the state and if i'm correct, once you are convicted you don't qualify??!! I have 2 misdemeanor charges from 1992 and i was wondering if it was an option to write the judge directly or would a pardon be the best route?? i have not been in trouble since then and they still haunt me, i love the net but jeeeeeeeeeez!!!! in the old days prospective employers just took you at face value, its crazy how all of these web(background check) sites profit from making people like me look like a hardened criminal!!!
