What Can Record Expungement Do for You?
An arrest or conviction on a person’s criminal record can make it hard to find or maintain employment, education, and housing. Under certain circumstances, you may be able to legally seal or expunge your criminal record. Our Seminole County criminal defense lawyers have experience representing clients in record expungement, and we are well equipped to handle a variety of issues that may arise.
- Benefits of having your criminal record expunged may include:
- Your record does not count as a Public Record
- Your record is removed from local law enforcement agencies, the clerk’s office, the state attorney’s office, and other government offices
- Details of your record may not be spread to private corporations or citizens
- You may even be able to legally deny that the arrest took place, under certain circumstances
In the state of Florida, you do not have to be a first-time offender to seek a record expungement. Eligibility for expungement depends on various factors. These include the nature and severity of other arrests and/or convictions in your criminal record, the length of time since the arrest or conviction you want to have expunged, and the nature and severity of the arrest or conviction that you want to have expunged.
Sealed vs. Expunged Records
If you criminal record is merely sealed, government agencies will still have access to it even though it is not available to the public. When your record is successfully expunged, however, no public, private, or government entity can access it or disseminate information related to it. At The Law Office of David A. Webster, P.A., our Seminole County criminal defense attorneys can help you file the correct paperwork and discuss the relevant factors of your case to seek a positive outcome.
