In this short video, Fort Worth criminal defense attorney Benson Varghese describes criminal nondisclosures and explains when they are allowed in Texas.
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.
You can also visit Tarrant County’s website for more information about post-conviction possibilities.
