Florida false arrest lawyer
When the job application asks, "Have you ever been convicted or a crime?" if you answer "yes," you may limit your chances of obtaining the job. If you answer "no," you are lying, and if the truth comes out, you could potentially lose your job.

The troubling thing about an arrest or criminal conviction even on minor charges is that the record of it never goes away. Criminal records can have far-reaching, unforeseen negative affects on a person's life. For instance, certain jobs may be off-limits to you as a result of your criminal record.
Sealing the Record and Expunging the Record
There are two ways to clear the record of your arrest or conviction, depending on the nature of your conviction:
Expunging a criminal conviction: This means that your criminal record is removed from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement records. Most first-time offenders, juveniles and in some cases adults not convicted of certain felonies, may be eligible for an expungement.
Sealing a criminal record: If a record is sealed, the access to that record is not public. Very few people may have access to that information. Juveniles, in particular, may have a record sealed. If the adjudication in your case was withheld, then the record may potentially be sealed.
Did you know that even if you are arrested and the charges are dismissed, that there is still a record of it? Even if you have been falsely charged and the case was dismissed, the record still stands.
The lengthy process of sealing or expunging a criminal record can potentially be made easier with the involvement of an experienced expungement attorney such as Scott T. Moorey.
