Data missing on thousands of Georgia DUIs

The state has no record of the outcome of nearly 100,000 DUI charges because counties and cities have failed to properly report how they handled Georgia's most dangerous drivers.

An Atlanta Journal-Constitution analysis of DUI charges in the Georgia Crime Information Center found yawning holes in the data that make criminal histories unreliable. This is of particular concern to employers, who are given limited access to the database to run background checks on job applicants. Courts and police use it on a daily basis to guide them in dealing with offenders.
