You need to look into expunging your record. Expungement is the legal deletion of your record. Several factors determine eligibility for sealing or expunging your record. First, the offenses you wish to address must meet the eligibility requirements. Second, you can’t have any convictions on your record from prior offenses. Third, to have your record expunged, the charges must have been dismissed. To have your record sealed, you must have received a withhold of adjudication. An adjudication of guilt (a conviction) will disqualify you from the process. If the charges were dismissed, you’ll want to have your record expunged, not sealed. Expungement is the deletion of the record and it offers you better protection from prying eyes. Finally, you can’t have applied for a sealing or expunging in the past. You’re only permitted to do it once in your lifetime, with the only exception being a juvenile matter that was administratively expunged following a diversion program.

I recommend you hire local counsel to assist you with the expungement and be sure to let them know that you would like their help in addressing the on-line information as well. There are some excellent lawyers in the Miami Dade area that can assist you, including Mr. Haber whom you can find here on AVVO.

Best of luck!

I agree with Mr. Ladan but would add that simply expunging your record won’t necessarily remove something from the internet. When a case is expunged, a court is issuing an order to the police, clerk, and other governmental agencies to destroy their records. The expungement doesn’t apply to a private company that may have collected your mugshot and personal information. Some of these sites will charge a fee to remove your information. Of course, other sites will remove the information if you provide them with the order expunging or sealing the record. Getting your case expunged is a good first step, but it won’t necessarily remove everything from the internet.

This is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.

Even if you get the whole case expunged, it can still be on the internet that you were arrested. Private companies have information on the internet and you have to pay them to remove the public knowledge. Then another will pop up. Do an internet search to see if there are any class action lawsuits against places like mugshots.com.

Mr. Laden is in error. Paying an attorney to expunge will not remove your posts about your record from the internet. Beware attorneys that will charge you and make promises that cannot be kept.

Remove Arrests & remove arrests can
I agree with the responses above. With the advent of the internet, everything is recorded and stored these days. An expungement will only expunge your records from government computers (with exceptions). Privately run companies like mugshots.com, will still show your mugshot and your charges…and also your home address. Florida is a very liberal state when it comes to public records. These commercial/websites will charge you a fee even if the charges were dropped, found not guilty, or acquitted. The latest quote I was given from mugshots.com when I inquired for a client while expunging her record was $400, and her charges were dropped. There are class action lawsuits against these companies all over the country EXCEPT for florida because our our robust open records law. So to counter that legislators have taken notice, and proposed House Bill 677. I suggest you get involved and hope this bill passes. The bill requires that websites like mugshots.com, take down your information after notice has been given to them that your case was dropped/you were found not guilty/or acquitted.

here is a link to the bill :

I guess short answer- expend the resources to wipe your record clean. Do it fast before other commercial websites get your information, and then it will turn into whack-a-mole
