What Crimes Can Be Expunged In Florida?
What crimes can be expunged in Florida? Almost all of the criminal charges can be expunged or sealed in Florida State if the State Attorney drops or dismisses your case. You may also be eligible for sealing or expungement even if you pled out to certain criminal charges. But you have to fulfill the conditions required by FDLE to be eligible for sealing and expungement.
However, there are also certain types of crimes that can neither be expunged nor sealed; even though you have not been convicted for any offense. Also, if you are adjudicated guilty by a judge for any criminal offense you cannot get your record sealed or expunged.
