San Antonio Criminal Record Expunction
Expunction is the process of erasing a criminal offense from an individual’s record. Expunging a criminal record in Texas can be a tedious process as there are many legal hurdles to go through, which is why it’s best to have an experienced attorney by your side. One must also consider that particular criminal records cannot be expunged. These include:
Arrests that resulted in a guilty conviction (except in special circumstances)
- Arrests that resulted in probation or community supervision (excluding Class C Misdemeanors)
- Criminal charges that were dismissed but are still within the statute of limitations
Criminal records that can be expunged include:
- Arrests where your name is accidentally recorded
- Criminal charges that resulted in an acquittal or not guilty verdict
- Offenses for which you successfully completed pretrial diversion
- Criminal charges that were dismissed
- Arrests in which you were released without being charged
- Arrests that resulted in a conviction, but the conviction was eventually overturned
San Antonio Non-Disclosure Lawyer
Those whose criminal record does not qualify for expunction may benefit from having their records sealed. A non-disclosure seals the record to the public, but does not erase them, they’re just hidden from the public eye. However, law enforcement officials and the District Attorney do have the ability to see these criminal records in the event of a criminal investigation. Attorney Sophia Martinez can make you aware of all situations that may result in such action and who in particular can pursue such action.
