Criminal Record Expunction
What Is Expunction?
Criminal record expunction (also known as ‘expungement’) is the legal process of removing a criminal arrest record from public records. (Technically speaking, the record is ‘expunged’.)
Why Seek Expunction?
Having your criminal record expunged, or cleaned, is important for many reasons. First of all, it is your legal right. (See ‘Am I Eligible for Criminal Record Expunction’ below.) Second, criminal arrests appear on your criminal background check. And, as many of us know, passing a criminal background checks with a clean record is a common condition of approval set by landlords, employers, financial institutions, colleges, universities, and many other organizations. Even if you were never charged, the arrest is most likely attached to your public record. Getting it removed can open up many doors and opportunities to you.
Am I Eligible for Criminal Record Expunction?
As covered in the State Bar Association of Texas, you MAY* have a legal right to expunction for:
- An arrest for a crime that was never charged;
- A criminal charge that was ultimately dismissed;
- Certain qualifying misdemeanor juvenile offenses;
- Conviction of a minor for certain alcohol offenses;
- Conviction for Failure to Attend School;
- Arrest, charge or conviction on a person’s record due to identity theft by another individual that was actually arrested, charged or convicted of the crime;
- Conviction for a crime that was later acquitted by the trial court or the Criminal Court of Appeals;
- Conviction for a crime that was later pardoned by the Governor of Texas or the US President.
*Of course, there are many specific provisions, exceptions, and other reasons why you may or may not be eligible for criminal record expunction. Each case is unique and professional legal consultation is strongly recommended. Most lawyers will offer a free consultation to determine the legitimacy of your case, and whether they are eligible to represent you.
