Expunction in Texas explained

Posted on September 29th, 2011 No Comments

Some employers and other agencies can be wary of individuals with criminal records.  To combat this, Texans who have been charged or convicted of certain crimes can have charges removed from their record through expungement.

Expungement, or expunction, allows Texans to file a petition to have criminal charges removed from their record.  Chapter 55 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure says that individuals who were found not guilty but have the arrest on their record, individuals with dropped charges, and individuals with an overturned conviction can file for expunction.

Texans with Class C misdemeanors and who have been ordered to complete deferred adjudication can also have charges expunged if all requirements of the probation were completed correctly.
