A: Go down to the police or sheriffs office and ask for a copy of your record. Minimal fee and that will show whats out there. Lots of ways to manage the results, one way or another.

A: If you were convicted, then it will likely still be on your record. Convictions do not age off of Georgia criminal histories.

Even if you were convicted and it shows, you may be eligible for record restrictions as a youthful offender. As the other lawyer said, best bet is to go to local law enforcement office to get a copy of your GCIC - criminal history.
