Texas Code of Criminal Procedure Chapter 55 lays out the laws regarding expungement of criminal records. The laws around expungement differ state to state so it is important to be aware of the specific regulations in Texas. In order to have your criminal charge expunged you must have been arrested and have been acquitted by the trial court or convicted and later pardoned. There are other exceptions and if you would like to discuss your unique situation, do not hesitate to contact our firm right away. It is important to note that expunging is different than sealing a record. Sealing means that the record is hidden from the general public while expunging means destroying the record.
