In the aftermath of criminal charges, expunction of your criminal record offers a positive step forward. If you require assistance with determining your eligibility for expunction or for sealing your records, you can benefit greatly from consulting with a lawyer familiar with the expunction process, such as Mervyn M. Mosbacker Jr.
Benefits of Obtaining an Expunction
You may been arrested for or charged with a crime or made mistakes in the past, but you have since moved on with your life. Unfortunately, despite having turned your life around — or having lived an honest life despite being wrongfully charged in the first place — your criminal record is now negatively impacting your hunt for employment or housing. An expunged or sealed record can prove of great assistance as you move forward with your life, especially if you hope to live or work somewhere with high standards for its residents or employees. Additionally, an expunged or sealed record can give you a much-needed sense of closure.
Expunction Versus Sealed Records
Many individuals with criminal records confuse expunction with record sealing. During the expunction process, the subject’s criminal record is completely destroyed. Record sealing makes it very difficult to access a given record, except for law enforcement officials, but does not actually destroy it. However, record sealing remains a valuable alternative for those who have successfully completed their community service after receiving deferred adjudication and are, therefore, not eligible for an expunction.
Expunction Eligibility in Texas
Not all Texas residents with criminal records are eligible for expunction. If your case was dismissed or you were arrested but never formally charged or indicted, you will most likely be able to have your record expunged. Likewise, an expunction is available if you went to trial on the charges and were acquitted. Even if you are not eligible for an expunction, you may qualify to have your records sealed.
