Criminal Record Expunction

Many people are unaware that even false arrests or dismissed criminal charges may remain on an individual's permanent criminal record, appearing whenever he or she applies for a job, housing, or other opportunity that requires a criminal background check. Fortunately, certain types of criminal records may be eligible for expunction or erasure by Texas law.

Individuals who have been wrongly accused or have been found not guilty of a crime often feel that their criminal record should not be tarnished due to false charges. Although expunction depends on the specifics of the criminal case, certain charges may be eligible for expunction. If you believe you may be eligible for criminal record expunction, contact Austin criminal defense lawyer Ian Inglis at (512) 472-1950.

Common Expunctions

The following factors are often considered for record expunction:

  • False arrests noted on a person's criminal record
  • Criminal charges that were eventually dropped
  • Criminal charges that were dismissed

Complete expunction of criminal records depends on the circumstances surrounding the arrest. If you have questions regarding the expunction of criminal history, it is important that you consult an experienced criminal lawyer. Although expunction may not be possible in some cases, there may be other options, including non-disclosure of criminal records.
