Q: Will I ever be able to get any of my felonies expunged and If so how many? I haven’t had even a traffic ticket since 2010? My first felony was for prescription fraud was at age 19,which adjudication would have been withheld but I failed the probation. Second felony was for possession of a firearm by convicted felon in 2003. I did a 3 year mandatory sentence and my third felony was for 2 sale and delivery charges in 2009. I was given 3 years probation and was terminated early for paying off my fines early and completing my 100 hours of community service. I recently looked up my DOC record and it stated that I was registered as a felon on 11/11/2010. A lot of other charges were thrown out but still remain on my record because of the arrest’s in itself. Which makes my getting any kind of worthily work impossible to find. I’m now 42 and can’t find anything over $10/hr and especially nothing with benefits like 401k’s or even health care. Is there anything I can do to polish up my record? Within 7 years I got my FICO to (780). I still haven’t been given any of my rights back. I’ve been a tax paying citizen ever since. Also I recently found out that my last employer had misclassified me too since 2010 and hasn’t paid anything in on my social-security (kick while your down) thank you for volunteering!

Your conviction (for whatever it was for) automatically disqualifies you from sealing or expunging anything, ever, in FL.
There is no end around.
Once you have a conviction you are a disqualified applicant, period.
The only possibility is clemency, and in that regard everything that you ever wanted to know about clemency – “the pardon process” – can be found at the following link :https://www.fcor.state.fl.us/clemency.shtml .
Sadly, at best an award of executive clemency is a veritable lottery drawing, and at worst it is truly a political process which is housed in a shroud of alleged fairness. In point of fact the odds of getting an award of a gubernatorial pardon are probably close to those for winning the lottery.
Still, wishing you luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
