8 years ago my fiance was unfairly convicted of a felony.

This answer was rated:

8 years ago my fiance was unfairly convicted of a felony. The DA was actually on her side and was stunned at the verdict handed down, and actually opposed it. SHe has had problems getting jobs since then. SHe would like to see about getting her record expunged if possible. I would like to know what chances she woud have, given that not only the DA but the parole officer were strongly moved by her plight, and would likely support her every move in the expungement process.In your experiences, is it liekyl, and how expensive would it be, if she completes the process pro se, with my help, writing any legal motions. thank you

Thanks for the information.

Under Florida law, a person convicted of or who pleads guilty to a felony cannot have his/her record expunged of the offense. Here's a good link to the Florida Dept of Law Enforcement that outlines this and other facts regarding the Florida expungement process; http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Content/Seal-and-Expunge-Process/Menu/Frequently-Asked-Questions.aspx

The only option for her would be to apply for a pardon with the Florida Parole Commission: https://fpc.state.fl.us/PDFs/ClemencyApplication.pdf
