Thanks for clarifying that. Every state's expungement's law is a little bit different, and it's only the state where the crime was prosecuted where the matter could be expunged, if at all.
So you need to look at Florida law. In this regard, unfortunately, it will be no friendlier to you than Texas's. Florida will only allow you to clear your record if it is your first and only offense AND it didn't
result in a conviction or was an adjudication withheld. I'm quoting from the statute below:
(1) Petition to expunge a criminal
history record.__Each petition to a court
to expunge a criminal history record is complete only when accompanied by:
(a) A certificate of eligibility for expunction issued by the department pursuant to subsection (2).
(b) The petitioner's sworn statement attesting that the petitioner:
1. Has never, prior to the date on which the petition is filed, been adjudicated guilty of a criminal offense or comparable ordinance violation or adjudicated delinquent for committing a felony or a misdemeanor specified in s. 943.051(3)(b).
2. Has not been adjudicated guilty of, or adjudicated delinquent for committing, any of the acts stemming from the arrest or alleged criminal activity to which the petition pertains.
3. Has never secured a prior sealing or expunction of a criminal history record under this section, former s. 893.14, former s. 901.33, or former s. 943.058, or from any jurisdiction outside the state.
4. Is eligible for such an expunction to the best of his or her knowledge or belief and does not have any other petition to expunge or any petition to seal pending before any court.
I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the only difference between a no contest plea and a plea of guilty is that the no contest plea cannot be used against you in civil court as an admission. For any and every other purpose, they are identical.
