Editor's note.

- In light of the similarity of the statutory provisions, opinions decided under former O.C.G.A. § 46-7-39 are included in the annotations for this Code section.

Fingerprinting not required.

- Offense arising from a violation of former O.C.G.A. § 46-7-39 did not, at this time, appear to be an offense for which fingerprinting was required; thus, this offense was not designated as one for which those charged were to be fingerprinted. 2010 Op. Att'y Gen. No. 2010-2.(decided under former O.C.G.A. § 46-7-39).

Misdemeanor offenses arising under O.C.G.A. § 40-1-55 are offenses for which those charged are not to be fingerprinted. 2012 Op. Att'y Gen. No. 12-6.
