Expunctions

Expunction.

Expunction of criminal cases are a valuable tool.  Criminal records are not like credit reports and do NOT roll off after 7 years.

Prompt Action.

You need to get any accusation off your record as soon as possible or you could lose the right.   A conviction for certain offenses such as family violence will prevent any future expunction.

Class C.

I have had several clients reach out about Class C convictions recently.  I am posting to show that you can even get convictions off your record if all the right elements apply in Texas. A whole section of the Government code reads:

Sec. 411.0735.  PROCEDURE FOR CONVICTION; CERTAIN MISDEMEANORS.

As noted in the section above you cannot have been ‘previously convicted’ which has not been interpreted yet by a court.  However, the language should be interpreted as previously means before that conviction not before the request for non-disclosure.  Otherwise it wouldn’t make sense.
