You should be able to get the cases that were not prosecuted expunged from court records. However, the DUI will not be expunged because you were adjudicated guilty.

Unfortunately, if you have any convictions on your record at all (if you were adjudicated guilty), you cannot expunge any records that were dropped or dismissed. However, there is a new bill under consideration in the Florida legislature that if passed would go into effect on 7/1/11. The exact wording hasn't been released, but the idea is to make the expungement rules more liberal to allow people to get work etc. You might want to check back at that time.
