After a record is SEALED, the petitioner may lawfully deny the arrest and the court case for the offense. HOWEVER, he/she must still disclose the sealed record in specific situations listed in Florida Statutes 943.059.

Similarly, when a record is EXPUNGED, the petitioner may deny the arrest and the court case BUT must still disclose the expunged record in specific situations listed in Florida Statutes 943.0585.
