Kerrville Expungement and Order of Non-Disclosure

A CRIMINAL RECORD COULD DAMAGE YOUR FUTURE

When a person is convicted of a crime, that conviction is recorded and kept available for almost anyone to see. Employers commonly access these records and review them before choosing to hire a new employee because they may be hesitant to hire someone with certain crimes on their record, such as sex crimes or theft crimes. As a result, obtaining a good job can be difficult if you have a criminal record.

DEFINING EXPUNGEMENT

When a person has a criminal record, they may lose hope and think that there is nothing they can do to clear their name. However, in certain situations, they could appeal to have their record wiped clean again. This process is known as expunction and may be available to persons who have been convicted of a Class C or Class B misdemeanor. A criminal defense lawyer could counsel and guide you through this process.

ORDERS OF NON-DISCLOSURE IN TEXAS

Even if you are not eligible for an expungement, you may qualify for an order of non-disclosure. Though this does not result in your criminal record being wiped as if it never existed, it does prevent the government from disclosing your record to third parties. This way you can still apply for and obtain decent jobs, because employers will not be able to search your criminal record.
