Prosecutors hold workshop to help Broward residents seal arrest records • Coral Springs Talk
By Kevin Deutsch
Broward County residents with arrest histories can learn how to request to seal and expunge their records at a workshop hosted by the Broward State’s Attorney’s Office, prosecutors announced Saturday.
The Arrest Records Sealing and Expunging Workshop will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. on March 3 at the Miramar Multiservice Complex, 6700 Miramar Parkway, Miramar. Doors will close at 7 p.m. sharp
If a person was charged with a crime and the case did not result in a conviction, they may be eligible for the deletion of a single arrest record, prosecutors say.
If they have been charged with a crime and received a withheld judgment, that case may be eligible to be sealed.
Only cases that occurred in Broward County can be reviewed by the Broward State’s Attorney’s Office.
Applicants are encouraged to complete a online application form before the workshop. Walk-ins are welcome. Participants must bring a valid ID.
For those wishing to submit their application by post instead of attending the workshop, the required documents are available for download here:
More information on the sealing and radiation process is available here.
For help determining if someone is eligible or for help with the process, call the Broward State Attorney’s Office at 954-831-6955.
