EXPUNGEMENT AND SEALING OF CRIMINAL RECORDS
Expungement of records refers to the process of sealing arrest and conviction records. Virtually every state has enacted laws that allow people to expunge arrests and convictions from their records. Though the details can vary from one state to the next, most state laws, including Texas, provide that once an arrest or conviction has been expunged, it need not be disclosed, this includes disclosing to potential employers or landlords. For example, assume that Joe was convicted of petty theft and later had the conviction expunged. This was Joe’s only brush with the criminal justice system. If Joe applies for a job and the application asks, “Have you ever been convicted of a criminal offense?” Joe can honestly answer, “No.” At The Law Offices of David P Ward, Mr. Ward has over 25 years experience, and an excellent success rate.
