        Question:

        Are adult criminal records ever automatically expunged?

        Answer:

        Since we’ve represented a lot of clients who’ve been accused by a crime, they’ve resolved their crimes by a plea, they’ve resolved their crimes by having the prosecuting authority dismiss their case or not charge the case, we’ve dealt with expungements and sealings many times. One question we get often is, will it just go away? Will it just disappear? The simple answer to that is no, it won’t. As a person who’s accused of a crime and charged with a crime, whether you were just simply arrested or whether you’ve entered into a probation or some other type of sentence or agreement with the state, your criminal record follows you forever unless you do something about it.

        The state of Florida allows under certain circumstances for certain individuals to apply to have their records sealed or expunged. This must be done by the client. They must be proactive, and they must get that application done, and they must get the final order sealed by a judge. None of that happens automatically. None of it happens at the end of the case. Sometimes we see this more often in situations where let’s say a first-time offender was referred to a diversion program, and the diversion program can be oftentimes sold to first-time offenders as a thing of beauty because once they’re done with the diversion program, they’ve complied with all the regulations, they’ve complied with all the sanctions, they’ve complied with the time of supervision, then the case is dropped, so many of my clients have thought that the fact that your case is dropped at the end of a diversionary program means that the case just goes away and that your record is sealed and expunged, and it can no longer ever be found. This is very untrue.

        Even if your case is a case where you’ve just been arrested and the prosecuting authority didn’t decide to prosecute you or they dropped the case, your arrest is still out there for everyone to see. Now, if it’s a case that you were arrested and charged with and you were either – it went to trial and you – it could be either one. You could be acquitted, or you could be convicted, or you enter a plea, any of those scenarios, you’re still going to have a criminal record that could be seen by anyone. The only way to get rid of that is to actively petition to have your record sealed or expunged.

        We would highly recommend that if you find yourself in that situation, that you get an attorney involved as soon as possible, as soon as you’re done with your claim, however it was resolved, whether it was dismissed, whether you pled out, whether you went to trial and you were acquitted or whatever the case may be, you need to get someone involved to help you through that process. That way you can ensure the best possible outcome and get your record sealed or expunged.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
