In Florida, it is sometimes possible to seal or expunge criminal records. This means the records would not be available to the public. The defendant may petition the court for this type of relief. The petition should state the grounds for relief and must be supported by an affidavit from the party seeking the relief.
The state may grant or deny the request. If the request is granted, the court will order all entities in possession of the records to seal and hold them in a nonpublic place.
