When you are arrested a government record is created on you and your arrest. This record is kept by many agencies including the FBI, the police department, jail, courts, and the Department of Public Safety. Texas law permits people to get their records expunged, or erased, depending on the outcome of your case. If you have been found not guilty or your case has been dismissed, please contact my office to discuss whether your records can be expunged.
One of the benefits to completing a deferred adjudication probation period is that you may be eligible to obtain an order for non-disclosure. This order prohibits governmental agencies from disclosing the details of your arrest to the general public.
