Expungement Attorney in Katy
Defense Throughout Waller County
After being convicted of a criminal offense in Texas, you may have the
opportunity to have it cleared from your record with an expungement. The
court can direct law enforcement agencies to destroy your records that
are associated with an arrest or prosecution, including:
- Jail records
- Police reports
- Prosecution reports
- Court files
The expungement process begins with your petition as the criminal defendant.
Upon the completion of a successful expungement, the petitioner can legally
deny having ever been arrested or charged with their specific crime.
Who is eligible for expungement?
Records of a charge or arrest can be obliterated unless they can be used
in another case. In such situations, the records can be retained by a
law enforcement agency. Individuals who are convicted of offenses under
§ 161.252 of the Texas Criminal Code can apply to have their convictions
expunged. The court will need to see that the individual completed all
necessary programs that are part of their sentencing.
Under Texas Code Criminal Procedure Article 55.01, individuals can have
their records expunged for various reasons, including:
- Acquittals by the trial court
- Convictions and subsequent pardons
- Release without conviction
Additional regulations exist for individuals who are pursuing expungements,
which I can discuss with you during a free and in-person
