What Is A Georgia Criminal Record?

Also, know as a rap sheet, a criminal record is an official document that provides specifics of an individual’s track record with law enforcement officials as well as Georgia and national legal systems. Precisely what is seen in a criminal record varies dependant on the age of the person and also the state where they perpetrated the deed. Records like these are used for background checks along with other situations for which an individual’s criminal history is essential. A more basic rap sheet will only contain a list of crimes that a person was found guilty of. More descriptive versions alternatively will supply details about arrests as well as their consequences.

Using Court Records to search Georgia Criminal Records Online: Currently, the state of Georgia doesn’t have a statewide system for searching criminal records. A number of counties offer access online at the local level. See the county information below.

Obtaining Criminal History Record Information: Most police and sheriff’s offices offer a self criminal background check to individuals. To gain access to the records of another person a signed consent must be made. The state of Georgia offers a fingerprint-based check for that. For a name only check a request will need to be made at the local level. For fingerprint-based statewide search see https://www.aps.gemalto.com/ga/index.htm.

Georgia Felon Search: Georgia offers a quick and convenient statewide felon records search at https://services.georgia.gov/gta/gafs/jsp/index.jsp. The cost for the search is $15. The online-based database contains records from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) database. The results only display felony records and won’t include misdemeanors and first offender records.

Most Common Crimes Which Show up on Georgia Arrest Records

Georgia Drug Related Crimes
In the modern world, a lot of people battle with substance abuse or improper use at some point in their lives. When someone possesses a drug-related crime on their criminal record, it indicates they may have been using, producing, or selling drugs that have been lawfully classified as unlawful substances. Some cases of drug crimes include selling pain pills illegally, running a meth lab, or using cocaine at a party. Because there are many types of prohibited drug activities, there are many different drug crimes.

Georgia Larceny / Theft
Larceny, in accordance with the UCR (Uniform Crime Reporting, a division of the FBI,) is defined as illegitimate taking, holding, leading or riding away of items belonging to another individual. Certain widely stolen property involves bicycles, motor vehicle parts along with related components. Other criminal acts in this area include shoplifting or pick pocketing.

Georgia Burglary
If an individual enters a home or business for the intended aim of committing a criminal act, then the charges are registered as burglary. They do not need to break a window or pick a lock to get in. Walking through an open door can still force offices to file charges according to this classification.

Georgia Robbery
A person commits robbery in the event that, in the act of carrying out a theft, that person hurts someone else, threatens to cause harm to another individual, or physically removed belongings from a person. A specific subsection to this law pertains to anybody who takes money from a bank, regardless of whether they uses a written note.

Georgia Assault/Battery
Assault happens when someone purposes to scare someone else by threatening to cause them bodily harm. As an example, if an individual threatens to “beat someone up’, they’re assaulting them under the statutes of U.S. law. Should they in fact move forward with their plans and do hurt the victim, then it is a charge of battery. Oftentimes, assault and battery are charged as one single assault statute in most states.

Georgia DWI/DUI
DWI or DUI serves as a phrase that encompasses most criminal acts surrounding the prohibited usage of a car while intoxicated, on drugs, alcohol or both. Particular charges related to driving drunk may be different in certain states. Classifying an illegal act as a DUI relies upon multiple factors. The person’s age, the kind of vehicle and intoxication levels all play in, as do the damaging of property and related injury or fatalities inflicted in the course of an automobile accident.

Georgia Disorderly Conduct
Disorderly conduct is participating in any action that will disrupt the peaceful, quiet, and enjoyment of others. The legal guidelines regarding this act vary from each state and city, but it is mainly any nonpeaceful occasion.

Georgia Criminal Traffic Violations
Most instances involving traffic offenses will need merely administrative actions in a streamlined procedure. This is because a great number of traffic violations have been decriminalized in most states. In spite of this, several traffic violations may still have criminal sanctions that may be either misdemeanors or felonies, depending upon their nature.

Georgia Fraud
Some people take part in fraud as a method to manipulate or bamboozle people from their money or possessions. It’s cheating or swindling another human being. Dependant upon the specific act, the fraud charge may be either criminal or civic. In the case that the crime is presented by a government prosecutor, it is a criminal charge, while the victim themselves could file for a civil charge. At times, the individuals that have perpetrated fraud may be charged in both categories of cases.

Georgia Vandalism
‘Vandalism’ is a generalized expression inclusive of much illegal activity involving destruction or defacement of private and public property. Certain local and state governing bodies may also use the subsequent related expressions for these kinds of offenses: graffiti, unlawful or malicious mischief and property damage.

Types of Georgia Arrest Records

Georgia Infractions Records
A petty violation code is given when someone goes against a regulation within a state or city jurisdiction. In most cases, the infraction is over a local traffic rule. These are generally minimal offenses that are not considered to be significant unlawful acts. Commonly referred to as civil violations, time in jail, isn’t used as punishment, and the individual is instructed to pay penalties to make up for his or her wrongdoing.

Georgia Misdemeanor Arrest
Misdemeanor offenses are less serious and are often reprimanded by larger fines. They could, however, end in time in jail, which is typically less than 12 months. Those found guilty of a misdemeanor will probably serve their time in a county or local jail as opposed to a state or federal prison. Like with insignificant offenses, misdemeanors generally come with a shortened trial, and defendants often do not have the ability to a court-appointed legal professional if they’re unable to pay for one on their own.

Georgia Felony Arrest
If somebody commits a felony, common law states that it’s an offense that can be reprimanded by at least a year in prison compared to the less-serious misdemeanor which merely earns less than a year in jail. The difference between the two sentences may differ depending on which state you reside in.

Georgia Juvenile Arrest
Juvenile arrest includes the arrest of a minor, or an individual younger than Eighteen. Contrary to everyday opinion, this record may follow an individual even after they reach their adult years. Underage criminals can still experience lingering ramifications of their criminal offenses for years to come. Particular states, however, might occasionally employ a practice available for petitioning the sealing or clearing of a juvenile record.

Georgia Arrest Warrant
Anytime a person is wanted for committing a crime or perhaps the suspicion of illegal acts, then the district attorney can file a request in court for an arrest warrant. The warrant permits the law enforcement agency the right to bring the individual to jail and hold them until they can see a judge. There are often limitations on how the warrants can be served, for instance, bench warrants are only presented on routine traffic stops or anytime an individual is brought in on alternative issues. However, a warrant for murder and other substantial crime results in a manhunt to bring the person into custody. The kind of infraction dictates the verbiage of the warrant.

Difference Between Prison vs Jail Arrests in Georgia.
The terminology “jail” and “prison” are often used interchangeably. While each of them refers to places where people are held, there’s, in reality, quite a bit of difference between the two. Regional government authorities maintain jails (usually a county), and they are also employed to hold those people who are pending trial or those who have received smaller sentences. Prisons on the flip side hold anyone who has been found guilty of significant crimes, typically individuals with a sentence of 12 months or more.

Expungement of Records in Georgia see https://georgia.gov/blog/2015-12-17/expungement-criminal-records
People need a new beginning occasionally and, as a result of record expungement, that may be feasible even for those who have perpetrated crimes. If somebody has their records expunged, the crimes no longer exist by law and are no longer accessible to the general public. Generally, expungement is achievable for charges, arrests, and insignificant convictions; even so, this is different from region to region. Several states even allow for felony expungements.
