If you’ve been arrested or charged with a crime in Daytona Beach or Volusia County a record will be maintained. This is true even if the charges are against you were dropped or diverted. These records are maintained by various government agencies including The Volusia County sheriff’s department, the arresting agency, The State Attorney’s office and The Volusia County Clerk of Court. This means records of your past can be easily viewed by potential employers, neighbors or the general public. This is not helpful after getting the charges against you dropped or diverted. Whether you are applying for a job, trying to get a loan, or looking for an apartment, your criminal history will always draw unwanted attention. There is a solution to this problem. Our attorneys frequently talk to individuals with retail theft charges, resisting arrest or other charges. Once they’re done with a diversion program leading to their case being dismissed, charges get dropped or have had their record sealed for at least ten years, our attorneys can file for an expungement with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
