Q: If a 1st time dui offense in Florida has been expunged why is the mug shot showing up when a web search is performed? My son did something stupid in college, 7 years latter it’s still coming back to bite him. He paid his dues, and is trying to move on, but these sites are making it impossible. His records were expunged by the state back in 2007, so how can this information now be public? I thought expungement would have prevented that from occurring. A quick search of his name on Google has a special link to his name through these sites. What I”d like to know is why is this photo online, or his information appearing after being expunged? While I understand it never really goes away, it shouldn’t be that readily accessible as a result of his expungement. I’ve read many articles about these site, but before thousands are spent I’d like to know has his privacy been violated as a result of this photo?
