Does Getting a Pardon from the Governor Automatically Mean That You Can Get Your Record Sealed or Expunged?

A pardon has been defined as “the forgiveness of crime and the penalty associated with it.”  In Florida, it is the governor who has the power to grant pardons.  Assuming you are fortunate enough to obtain a pardon, does that automatically mean that you can get your criminal record sealed or expunged?  That was the question decided by the Florida Supreme Court in the case of R.J.L. v. State of Florida.  An article that I posted on my website Florida Criminal Records:  Frequently Asked Questions discusses that case.
