Who has a criminal record in Georgia?
In Georgia, a public criminal record starts at arrest for a “fingerprintable offense”. Traffic citations (except DUIs, Driving with a Suspended License and similar charges) are usually not fingerprintable offenses and do NOT show up on your public criminal record. However, they would show up on your driving history, which is different from your official criminal record.
Municipal and county ordinance violations are also not fingerprintable offenses and do not go on your criminal record. If you were arrested, it was likely for a fingerprintable offense and the charge is on your record.
