Can an expungement be denied in Florida?

Yes, an expungement can be denied in Florida if you have an adjudication in your background, if you have a juvenile adjudication or if you have an adult adjudication. An adjudication is where the court adjudicated you guilty of a crime. If you have withhold, then you can get it expunged, but you cannot have any adjudication in your background whatsoever. Even something as simple as driving without a valid license where the only thing you had to do was pay a $200 fine, let’s say, you still are not able to get any future cases expunged because that is an adjudication.
