Expunging your Florida Criminal Record History

Subject to a few exceptions, having your criminal record expunged gives you the right to deny ever having been arrested or charged with a crime.

What Happens When Your Criminal Record is Expunged

When the court grants a petition to expunge it will then order that your criminal record be physically destroyed. The court order will direct the courts, state attorney’s office and law enforcement agencies that possess either a physical or electronic record related to your expungement petition to physically destroy them. However, one copy of your record is retained by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and that copy is not viewable by anyone without court order.  It is a first degree misdemeanor for law enforcement or other related agencies to even say that you had a record sealed or expunged.  As with sealing, information regarding your arrest or charge will be removed from the Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) so that it WILL NOT COME UP ON ANY BACKGROUND CHECKS.

Expunction of a Criminal Record Has Five Effects:

  1. The criminal record is physically destroyed.
  2. The criminal record is physically unavailable and unobtainable by the general public, including future employers or other prying eyes;
  3. The individual may lawfully deny or fail to acknowledge the expunged criminal incident;
  4. The individual does not commit or make a false statement by failing to acknowledge the expunged criminal incident;
  5. Information relating to the expunged criminal incident is confidential.

NOTE: See LIMITED EXCEPTIONS (In certain circumstances the sealed criminal activity is not confidential, and the individual may not lawfully deny or fail to acknowledge the sealed incident)
