Panama City Criminal Defense Attorney

Local Defense Focused Exclusively on Criminal Law Cases

Having a criminal record can make many aspects of life much more difficult. For many people, their criminal record is a frustrating reminder of the mistakes they made in their youth, and should not hinder them as they try to move along with their lives in adulthood. For this reason, it is possible for certain qualifying individuals to expunge their criminal record. An expungement removes the evidence of the crime from public record, making it appear as if the crime never existed to the general public.

About Expungements in Florida

In the state of Florida, criminal records may qualify for expungement in the following circumstances:

  • The crime did not lead to a conviction
  • The criminal record has already been sealed for 10 or more years
  • An individual with a criminal record received withheld adjudication and completed his or her sentence

It is also important to keep in mind that not all crimes are eligible for expungement. More serious crimes, especially violent crimes, are not entitled to expungement.

Obtaining an Expungement

For individuals who have a criminal record of crimes they committed as juveniles, this record is typically expunged automatically at the age of 23 or 25. However, anyone else who wishes to have their criminal record expunged must file an application with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Our attorney can help you file the appropriate application, as well as work to certify proof of case disposition or completion of a diversion program and more.

Contact Albert J. Sauline, III Attorney at Law to discuss your eligibility for expungement.
