I got a federal expungement!!
In 1995 I committed a federal crime (felony) and was duly sentenced to 3 years probation and to pay restitution of almost $60,000. I completed all the terms of the court successfully. I heard it was impossible to receive a federal expungement and heard somewhere, cant remember that if you joined the military and received an honarable disharge it would erase your record, the facts of that were not 100% true. So I seeked attorneys throughout Florida to find out what I can do. At no success I was unable to get the info I desired. All I got was alot of very expensive quotes for representation and with no guarantee of the outcome. I then spoke with a person in the North East part of the country seeking other alternatives, much to my surprise with the info that was given to me I followed that and in June of 2009 I successfully was granted a federal expungement. After all the quotes of no less than $20,000, I did the whole expungement for less than $100, including parking fees, filing fees, gas, and stamps. I am now licensed to carry a weapon again and all my rights have been restored. It took a long time to get here but it was worth the wait. If you want something hard enough you can acheive it. Most states are different and there protocols are far more difficult to accomplish but follow there rules and you never know what may happen. I am definitely for the ruling for GIVING A SECOND CHANCE to a person who is deserving of it. I hope this story finds someone and gives them the motivation to press on and dont give up. By the way I am just a high school graduate with no college education, so if I can accomplish this you surely can. Don’t let anyone tell you that you cant get one, cause that is what started me in the first place. Good luck to all of those seeking to get an expungement
