Video: When Can You Get Criminal Nondisclosures in Texas?

In this short video, Fort Worth criminal defense attorney Benson Varghese describes criminal nondisclosures and explains when they are allowed in Texas.

Video Transcript:

A nondisclosure in Texas is allowed under certain circumstances. That is generally when an offense that is a Class B misdemeanor or greater, including felony offenses, have been deferred and then ultimately dismissed without a conviction. That is different from a case being dismissed without being placed on deferred. There is also, for felonies, a waiting period of five years that must pass after the case has been dismissed before you are eligible for a nondisclosure.
