Video: Can I Get an Expunction in Texas?

Benson Varghese discusses removing offenses and arrests from a person’s criminal history through an expunction in Texas in this short video.

In Texas, a person can get an expunction of their criminal record under some circumstances. For most cases, that means either a case was not filed or the case was ultimately dismissed without a conviction and without any sort of probation. That’s going to be true for a Class B or a Class A misdemeanor, as well as any felony offense.

For a Class C misdemeanor, you can actually get an expunction if your case has been deferred and then dismissed or dismissed outright. It’s important to remember that there is a time period that must pass before you’re eligible for an expunction. That’s generally going to be the statute of limitations for that offense. For a misdemeanor, you’re generally going to wait two years unless the misdemeanor was a Class C in which case you can wait six months. For a felony, the statute of limitations is going to vary by the offense. Three, five, and seven-year statute of limitations are common, but it’s important to consult with an attorney to determine if you are eligible for an expunction.
