Expungement of a Juvenile Criminal Record
A criminal record can follow a person for a lifetime, making it difficult to find a job or housing. Juvenile criminal records can be sealed or expunged, just like adult criminal records. However, expungement is not always necessary. Juvenile records are usually not available to the public. If you have a concern about whether your child’s criminal record will come back to haunt him or her, please schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced attorney at The Denson Firm by calling (727) 896-7000 or filling out our intake form .
We can advise you if it is necessary to pursue juvenile criminal record expungement. To learn more about criminal law and read answers to frequently asked questions about criminal proceedings, please visit Criminal Defense FAQs.
