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
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.
