HB 261: Penal institutions; certain individuals sentenced between March 18, 1968 and October 31, 1982; allow to petition court for first offender statusVoted on Friday March 3, 2017
John Pezold's thoughts
HB 261 allows individuals sentenced prior to 1982 who can petition the court, with the consent of the prosecuting attorney, to have their criminal record exonerated and discharged so long as the individual would have otherwise been eligible for first offender status at the time of their sentencing.More information on legis.ga.gov
