Q.”What if I’m falsely identified and wrongfully arrested and accused of a sexual offense, and the police and prosecution are then aware of this and drop the charges, can’t I get this arrest sealed?” A. Ft. Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer John M. Castellano tells you the real deal:

Posted by:

“You don’t have to be a Florida federal criminal defense attorney or a Fort Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer like me to see for yourself that sexual battery offenses and/or lewd and lascivious behavior or sexual assault charges are NOT “eligible” for “sealing” or “expungement” under the statutes and laws of the State of Florida.

Just quickly look at for the unfortunate proof that all sexual assault or lewd and lascivious or sexual battery charges are “ineligible” for sealing or expungement, regardless of the ultimate disposition of these offenses!

Your legislature made a huge error in NOT providing for those occasional scenarios wherein an accused is, in fact, falsely identified or accused and then wrongfully arrested for one of these “ineligible” sexual offenses, even when the Detectives and prosecutors concede this fact!” — John Castellano, Fort Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer

These are thankfully, however, alternative and yet more challenging ways to remedy this injustice, and we can talk about this when you call me. Please feel free to call me at the law office any time at 954 766 8810 and I will do everything I can to help you and your loved ones.

Always there for you,
