Your Criminal Record After Charges Are Dropped, Dismissed or You Are Found Not Guilty
I was told my charges were dropped. I was told my case was dismissed. I was told my case ended with withheld adjudication. I was told my criminal case was over... So why is my case still haunting me?
When criminal charges are dropped or dismissed, or you are found not guilty, yes — your criminal case is over. However, even when you are not convicted, your criminal history record still exists and will display a significant amount of negative information to the general public until you take action to get your record expunged or sealed.
At the Fort Lauderdale law office of Robert Serrone, P.A., we help adults and juveniles throughout Florida with obtaining a clean slate through record sealing and record expungement/expunction. Talk to Florida expunction attorney Robert Serrone about your case in a free consultation. Call 888-531-8969 or contact our law firm online.
Obtain a Clean Slate on Your Criminal Record
Until your record is sealed or expunged, your criminal history record will be available through a simple background check and can reveal:
- Records of your criminal arrest
- Information regarding motions filed in your criminal case
- Criminal charges filed against you
- Plea agreements accepted in your criminal case
- Pretrial diversion programs that you participated in
- Disposition of your case (withheld adjudication, diversion, not guilty, etc.)
Once your records are sealed or expunged, you can legally say that the arrest never occurred — on job applications, college applications, loan applications, in candidate interviews, etc.
