David Oedel, a law professor at Mercer University, joined Frank Malloy on Eyewitness News at 6 to look at Monday's ruling by the Georgia Supreme Court about roadblocks in Bibb County.

He said the Bibb Sheriff's Office must now create a program with a purpose other than general crime control for these roadblocks.

By revising their program, it will put them in compliance with a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court from 2000.

Oedel added that convictions in Bibb County from these roadblocks have since been "infirm convictions." And in that case, they could possibly be expunged from a person's record.
