Gwinnett solicitor hosting record expungement event

The Gwinnett County Solicitor’s Office will host a “restriction summit” next week, giving residents with certain types of misdemeanor criminal records the chance to start fresh.

Those interested in participating in the Oct. 19 event must submit applications beforehand. Forms can be submitted here and must be provided to the solicitor’s office — located in the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, 75 Langley Drive in Lawrenceville — by Oct. 12.

Record restriction means that certain records are hidden from public view; they are still available to law enforcement.

Applicants hoping to have their records restricted must meet the following criteria: 

  • Arrested in Gwinnett County jurisdiction
  • Must not be convicted/found guilty at trial
  • Did not plead guilty/no lo contendere
  • Certain misdemeanors while under the age of 21
  • Completed a pre-trial diversion program
  • Completed “first offender” case

The summit will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 19, in Student Union Building E at Georgia Gwinnett College. The college is located at 1000 University Parkway in Lawrenceville.
