Criminal Defense FAQs

When it comes to cleaning up your criminal record, Florida has two separate, but similar procedures that are commonly confused. Sealing or expunging a criminal record can help some people move forward from an embarrassing and painful time in life. There are several considerations that you’ll want to discuss with an attorney before making this important decision.

When a court seals your case, it is prohibiting the general public from accessing the court records. When a court expunges your case, it is destroying the file.

If you were arrested, but your case (1) was not filed, (2) was dismissed by the prosecutor or (3) the judge, or (4) you were found not guilty, then you are eligible to have your criminal record expunged.

If you were arrested and later found guilty by plea or verdict, and the adjudication was withheld, you are eligible to have your criminal record sealed.
