“The Governor and Cabinet of Florida, acting in the capacity of the Board of Executive Clemency, declared on June 10, 1999, that the granting of a full pardon does not remove any condition of ineligibility for sealing or expunging a criminal history record which would otherwise be imposed by a conviction or withholding of adjudication pursuant to §943.0585 and §943.059, Florida Statutes, and, acting in the capacity of the agency head of the Dept. of Law Enforcement, the Board directed FDLE to deny a Certificate of Eligibility to any person receiving a pardon who is otherwise ineligible for the sealing or expunging of the person’s criminal history record.” - Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
