Legal Answers
69 Questions Answered
Q. If legal charges were dropped on me, why does it still show up on my record?
A: Unfortunately, that is not how the law works. If you are an adult, any official evidence of the arrest must be removed by order of a court. The process requires an application to FDLE to determine eligibility to have the record expunged. I would suggest speaking to a local attorney who can discuss the process with you. If you have any prior convictions or have had a prior expungement you may not qualify. If you are able to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility from FDLE you can file a Petition to Expunge yourself with only filing and copying fees. A local Legal Aid office may also be able to give assistance if you qualify financially.
Q. how to delete a mugshot out of internet
A: A "mugshot" can be found in multiple locations. Some of these locations are private companies and some are law enforcement. A private company may not be obligated to honor your request for removal, although they may be willing to do so voluntarily. A law enforcement site is not obligated to remove the arrest information unless ordered to do so by a Court as part of a Expungement or Seal order. I would suggest contacting a local attorney to have them review the case to see if you might be eligible for either of these petitions.
Q. Good morning. MY QUESTION: I was charged with “Grand theft (more than $750 but less than $2500.00”. Continues below
A: If you entered a plea to this case and was placed on probation "with adjudication", the information will never be removed from your record. If you entered into some type of diversion, you may be able to seek expungement or sealing if the case was dismissed. If the "dismissal" refers to an affidavit of violation of probation, then the information is not likely to go away.

The best recommendation I can make is to speak to a local attorney so that they take a look at the disposition of the case and make a recommendation. The information you provided is insufficient to allow a more specific answer.
