Provided the charge is burglary of an unoccupied structure or burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, you should be eligible to have your criminal record sealed.
Unfortunately, Florida law considers "burglary of a dwelling" to be a disqualifying offense. If you have received a withhold of adjudication for the charge of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, you will not be able to seal your record.
The only way to eliminate a burglary of a dwelling charge from your record is to either have the case dismissed (which would then allow you to get the charges expunged), or to get the charge reduced to a burglary of a structure.
If you have already received a withhold of adjudication for a burglary of a dwelling charge, you are not eligible to have your record sealed.
If you have received a withhold of adjudication for burglary of an unoccupied conveyance or burglary of an unoccupied structure, please feel free to contact me so I can explain in detail the sealing process.
If you are presently charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, contact me so that we can formulate the best defense. If you plead guilty or no contest, you may be stuck with a criminal record for life.
