Can You Expunge Your Criminal Record?
If your case was dropped or dismissed, you may be able to expunge your record. Through expungement, you can remove your criminal record entirely from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s records and other databases. With limited exceptions, you can then legally say that you were never charged with a crime.
If you do not qualify to expunge your record, you may be able to seal it. Sealing a criminal record makes it confidential, preventing many of the issues you face today.
Florida has strict laws regarding expunging and sealing criminal records. For example:
- There can be no conviction whatsoever with the underlying charge. In other words: If the judge or jury found you guilty, you cannot expunge your record.
- You can only seal or expunge a Florida criminal record once in your lifetime (unless you have had a juvenile expungement).
- A number of crimes are prohibited from expungement such as sex crimes, robbery and homicide.
It is important to speak with an experienced attorney about your case — an attorney who understands Florida’s expungement laws and can help you take action to protect your future.
