How Long Does a Juvenile Crime Stay on Your Record in Florida?

When a minor is convicted of a crime, the offense will be added to their criminal record. This can have serious consequences for their future. For example, a criminal record can make it difficult for a minor to get into college or find a job. It can also impact their ability to secure housing or obtain a loan.

However, in some cases, a minor may be able to have their criminal record sealed or expunged. When a record is sealed, it is not destroyed but hidden from the public. This means that employers, landlords, and others cannot see the offense. However, law enforcement agencies and certain other entities can still access the record.
