Expungement of Criminal Records and Judges' Rulings

          The rule that governs the expunction of criminal history records in Florida states that “any request for expunction of a criminal history record may be denied at the sole discretion of the court.” Nevertheless, Florida law has consistently held that the words “sole discretion” do not permit judges to arbitrarily deny requests for expunctions. An article that I just posted on my Florida Criminal Records FAQ website examines one case in which the judge hearing the matter did precisely that.  Please read that article if you would like to learn more.
