What is Sealing?
Sealing a criminal record means that the public cannot obtain your criminal history. Some government entities, however, do have access to your entire record. In extremely rare occasions, a judge can order a criminal record to be unsealed, but, again, that is exceedingly uncommon. Indeed, court and law enforcement personnel can be charged with a first-degree misdemeanor if they disclose a sealed criminal record without a court order.
What is Expungement?
Expungement is the most powerful limitation on law enforcement’s access to a criminal record. When a record has been expunged, the courts and all the government agencies who have possession of your record must physically destroy them. Consequently, this makes disclosure, accidentally or otherwise, impossible. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement does retain one copy of your criminal history. Those same government entities that would have had access to a sealed record will be informed that you, the subject of the record, have had your record expunged; those entities do not have access to the record itself without a court order. All they will receive is a caveat or warning statement indicating that “Criminal Information has been Expunged from This Record”.
Benefits of a Florida Expungement
Access to an Expunged Record
No one public entity has access to your criminal history. However, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement has the authority to disclose the existence, yet not the specifics, of your expunged history if you apply for employment, membership or a license with one of these agencies:
  • A criminal justice agency
  • Florida Bar
  • Department of Children and Family Services
  • The Department of Juvenile Justice
  • A contractor or licensee in a sensitive position having direct contact with children
  • The Department of Education
  • Any public or private school
  • A local government agency that licenses child care facilities
Right to Renounce and its Limitations
Once we have obtained your expungement, you can disavow or fail to admit the arrest or conviction that the expungement enumerates.
Be that as it may, there are caveats to the right to renounce that expunged case. These are the situations in which you must admit to an expunged case. If you are:
  • A candidate for employment with a criminal justice agency
  • A defendant in a criminal prosecution
  • Concurrently or subsequently petitioning to have another unrelated criminal episode sealed or expunged
  • A candidate for admission to the Florida Bar
  • Seeking to be employed, licensed by or contracted with:
    • The Department of Children and Family Services
    • The Department of Juvenile Justice
    • Any position having direct contact with children
    • The Department of Education
    • Any public or private school
    • Any local government agency that licenses child care facilities
A Better Quality of Life
Removing the label that a criminal history attaches to a person has far-reaching benefits. Once you have gained an expungement, you can engage in life with the knowledge that the following list of institutions and people are blocked from your record:
  • Landlords
  • Future Employers
  • Schools, colleges and universities
Obtain a State License
A number of jobs and careers require a state license. With an expungement, if you need a license for your occupation, you can apply for one without fear that your application will be rejected.
Aquire a Loan
With an expungement, your criminal history will not be an issue in your application for a bank or student loan.
Juvenile Delinquency in the Past
Few juveniles truly understand the consequences of their actions. Without the life experience that aids most of us in our decision-making process, some adolescents will act without any consideration for the consequences. Don’t allow those delinquent act(s) to haunt your life. If the laws of Florida allow you to expunge that part of your past, why should you allow a rash act to continue to damage your life?
