Expungement of Criminal Records
If you have ever been arrested for a crime, you know how it can haunt you. Often such records can not only cause employment and benefits issues, but for some individuals it may be a cause for their deportation. The Musil Law Firm has helped such individuals clear their criminal record, avoid deportation, and complete immigration to the United States.
If you are arrested you know you are entitled to your day in court. Even if you win that day and are found “not guilty” or the charges against you dropped, or dismissed, that arrest record can still be around to haunt you. If you have been arrested, or were the defendant in a criminal case for any reason, the records of your case, become a public record. That means all the police files on you, judicial records, and the record of any time you may have had to spend in jail prior to your trial.
We have all had to fill out job applications, applications for new homes, loans etc. Have you noticed that often these applications ask not “have you ever been convicted of a crime”, but have you “ever been arrested”. Even if you were found not guilty, but you have not had your record expunged, you would have to answer “yes” to that question, which could ruin your chances.
A Florida criminal record can be removed from public view in one of two ways; criminal records may be sealed or expunged. We are knowledgeable in preparing applications for expungement or for sealing arrest records from any area of Florida.
