You would petition for an expungment of your criminal record or to have the record sealed.
Generally, only cases where you have been found "Not Guilty", or where the charges have been dismissed, or were dropped, can be expunged.
In cases where you have pled guilty, or nolo contendere (No Contest) or have been found guilty, but rather than a conviction you received an adjudication of guilt "withheld" you can apply to seal your Florida criminal record.

Crimes for which Florida criminal records cannot be sealed regardless if you received a "withhold of adjudication."
