    Lawyers agree

    Answered . There is only a limited time in which you can appeal any conviction. Besides, with 6 violations, what do you think the FL appellate court will do? You should have thought about the consequences of your acts long before now. Perhaps if you contact a really good FL attorney in the county in which your case was heard you might be able to discuss the possibility of sealing or expunging your record. You probably could not do that here, but we do not know what Florida would do.

But the violations of the order are going to be an albatross around your neck. Go talk to a Florida criminal defense attorney and lay out all the facts. Be honest and don't expect miracles.
