The Difference Between Sealing and Expunging a Criminal Arrest Record
When a criminal record of an arrest or conviction is sealed, it means that the record is physically sealed and there is no longer public access to it. You can legally deny that you were ever convicted of the crime.
When a criminal arrest record is expunged, the records are physically destroyed so they are not available for public access.
You Have an Arrest Record Even if the Charges Against You Were Dismissed
One reason criminal record expungement is so important is that, under Florida law, your arrest record remains publicly accessible even if the charges were dismissed or adjudication was withheld.
You must actively apply for expungement of the arrest, and The Law Office of Corey I. Cohen, can help you do that, for a very reasonable fee.
