2. If the FDLE denies my Application for a Certificate of Eligibility to seal or expunge my criminal history record, can I appeal (i.e., ask for judicial review) of the denial?
Yes. If there are grounds to believe that the denial of the Certificate of Eligibility was issued in error, a denial-review can be requested.
If the denial of the Application is based on erroneous or incomplete information provided to the FDLE, there exists a procedure for reviewing and correcting that record.
- This procedure can be found under Florida’s Administrative Code, Rule 11C-8.001 – “Criminal History Records Review and Correction Procedures.”
If you believe that the information provided to the FDLE was in fact correct but believe that the law has been incorrectly applied or interpreted, the Application can be appealed through the judicial system (i.e., courts) in which the petition to expunge or seal would be filed.
