Expungement in Texas

Posted on July 29th, 2010 No Comments

In Texas, expungement can be very helpful to people who have been arrested but found not guilty of the charges.  For people that have been found not guilty, if they do not have their record expunged the charges and arrest will remain on their record and can be harmful to their future in a variety of ways.

Texas laws also allow people convicted of Class C misdemeanors to expunge their record if they have received and completed deferred adjudication.

After an expungement suit, the release and distribution of expunged records by any agency is prohibited.  Furthermore, the person whose record is expunged is then allowed to deny the occurrence of the arrest and charges, even under oath.
