Everyone, at some point, has made a mistake or has been in the wrong place at the wrong time resulting in trouble. For some, that trouble can lead to a criminal record reflecting an arrest, charge, or conviction. Texas law does allow individuals to remove information about an arrest, charge, or conviction from their permanent records in certain circumstances. This is called an expunction. Once a person’s record is expunged, all information is removed from the criminal record and that person can deny the incident ever occurred.
Having a criminal record can make life more difficult in many ways, including affecting a person’s ability to get a loan, their insurance rates, whether they can sign a lease to rent an apartment, or if they can find a job where they can be hired – not to mention your reputation. Texas does allow some leeway via statute by which someone with a record can have that record erased or sealed. The ability to have your criminal record expunged is a statutory right, not a constitutional right. Therefore, to be eligible for a Texas expunction, a person must meet all of the requirements listed in the applicable statute, Code of Criminal Procedure Article 55.01. An expunction is designed for individuals who have been wrongly arrested and/or wrongly charged with a criminal offense; and, if granted, it allows the person to deny the arrest ever happened and all government records of the arrest and prosecution file will be destroyed. It’s important to know the crimes that can be expunged in Texas.
Texas Law allows individuals to expunge certain offenses from their records. An expungement means that all records related to a particular arrest are deleted or destroyed.
