Can Your Record Be Sealed or Expunged?

recordIf you are arrested because of a Florida DUI or a different charge, you may be concerned about the long-term ramifications and whether it will follow you around for the rest of your life. There is a possibility you may be able to have your record sealed or even expunged, provided you have never been found and/or adjudicated guilty due to a misdemeanor or felony.

A DUI expungement will depend on several factors, including whether or not your case resulted in one of the following:

  • Non-file
    • The state chose not to file formal charges.
  • Nolle prosequi
    • The state dropped the charges after they were filed.
  • Not guilty verdict

Should your DUI case result in something other than a non-file, nolle prosequi, or a not guilty verdict, but your case ended with a finding of guilt whereafter the court withheld adjudication, there is still the possibility of having your record sealed. However, your eligibility may change if you have had a previous arrest record sealed and have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor.
