  5. If I have been previously convicted in another state in the United States of America, am I eligible to expunge or seal my criminal history record here in the State of Florida?

7. If I have been previously convicted in another state in the United States of America, am I eligible to expunge or seal my criminal history record here in the State of Florida?

 

No. One of the few conditions which will automatically prevent a person from expunging or sealing a criminal history record in the State of Florida is, if the person has been previously Convicted of a criminal offense (i.e., Adjudicated Guilty) in any judicial criminal proceeding in the United States of America.

Nevertheless, it is possible that the other state may have a similar ‘Withhold of Adjudication’ legal fiction which could allow a person to qualify for a criminal record expungement or sealing, here, in the State of Florida.
