Atlanta, GA asked in Criminal Law for Georgia

Q: Will the below info be on my record?

A cop caught my girlfriend and I in her car having sex. I didn't have my ID on me, so he took my name and birthdate and went back to his car. He came back and told us that he wouldn't issue a warning or a citation since our embarrassment was enough of a punishment. Will that be on my record with the police, regardless? BTW, it's in Snellville, GA where this happened.

A: It is possible there will be an administrative record of the stop within the police department records. However, since you were not formally arrested or convicted, the encounter will not likely be public record.
