You will need a lawyer in the State where you were convicted to determine if you can expunge your record. In Florida, you would not be able to expunge a conviction. Regarding the registration, we would need to know what you were convicted of to determine if you need to register. In all likelihood if you were convicted as a sex offender in the other state you would have to register here. But I admit, we do not have all the facts to determine.
Please be advised that answering your questions on AVVO does not establish an attorney-client relationship with myself or the Umansky Law Firm, P.A. Please also know that anything that you post on Avvo or on any public forum site is open to the public and therefore can be obtained by the Government to use against you at a trial or a hearing. Be careful what you post publicly online! Please know that most of the lawyers on AVVO are taking their time to answer questions for free, so please mark answers helpful if the lawyer helped you!
There is no way to remove the requirement for sex offender registration if you where convicted of a qualifying offense. The only way off would be to have the conviction in Washington State overturned or receive a full pardon. This would have to be accomplished in Washington State.

Unless the Governor pardons you you are dead in the water in FL.
Following is a link to FDLE'ss ex offender website. there is neither any wiggle room nor any exceptions. FL has a zero tolerance policy.
Please see: https://offender.fdle.state.fl.us/offender/homepage.do
As to the issue of clemency, everything that you ever wanted to know about clemency - "the pardon process" - can be found at the following link : https://fpc.state.fl.us/Clemency.htm .
Sadly, at best an award of executive clemency is a veritable lottery drawing, and at worst it is truly a political process which is housed in a shroud of alleged fairness. In point of fact the odds of getting an award of a gubernatorial pardon are probably close to those for winning the lottery.
Still, I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo.

It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
