Texas

Texas offers record sealing and expunging, termed as ‘expunction’ to those wrongfully convicted and demonstrated at a later date. However, for charges such as these, even with innocence, a wait period of one to three years applies, the ladder being the mandatory period of time required for a felony-conviction expunction. Texas allows requests for expunction for those that are eligible for and complete a deferred adjudication community supervision program. This record sealing does not block your information from all fellow state law agencies and other organizations of enforcement. However, expunction in any case will do so, within reason, excluding law enforcement agencies for the purpose of employment, or with regards to charges involving minors.
