I wrote bad checks how long does the felony stay on

Question: How long does a felony stay on your records for writing checks? I had written checks that I didn’t have money to cover.


Answer: Under current Georgia law, felony convictions are never eligible for restriction (also known as expungement).  A conviction of a felony will generally stay on the person’s criminal record permanently. However, under certain circumstances, O.C.G.A. § 35-3-37 allows a person’s criminal history to be restricted to prevent the public from accessing it.
