If you have been charged with a crime in the State of Florida, that record does not have to follow you around for the rest of your life. Call Janet Johnson today to have her expunge or seal your record.
If a person was charged with an offense but there was no conviction, they might be eligible to have their criminal record sealed. Sealing that criminal record restricts access to the information, but does not make it totally “disappear.” Sealed and expunged records are still accessible by certain employers, including the judicial system and law enforcement agencies.
Juveniles can have their records automatically expunged at the age of either 24 or 26, depending on the charges. If a juvenile has charges that are dismissed, they can petition to have records sealed.
Sealing and expungement of records is not available for any charges in which the person was convicted. A big benefit to having a sealed criminal record is that, in some situations, it is legal for an applicant with a sealed or expunged record to answer “No” when they are asked if they have ever been accused of a criminal offense.
For more detailed information, and to find out whether your case can be sealed or expunged, contact Janet Johnson today at 904-634-8991 for a free consultation, or email us.
