Expungement and Sealing
Under certain circumstances, the record of someone’s arrest or convictions can be expunged. This means that all “public records” of the person’s arrest or conviction would be erased from public view.
If you were arrested but not convicted of a crime, your criminal record may be eligible for sealing or expungement. If you were found guilty—or pleaded guilty or nolo contendere—there is an extensive list of crimes that are not eligible for expungement or sealing under Florida law.
