Sometimes cases can be dismissed through taking classes, restitution, pre-trial diversion, lack of evidence, witness problems, legal arguments, or, if necessary, by being willing to go to trial and hold the prosecution to its burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Expunction or Order of Non-Disclosure
Looking backwards, is there any way to get this arrest off my record?
Generally speaking – an expunction is available if your case was never filed, if your case was dismissed, or if you successfully completed a Pre-Trial Diversion Program. It results in your files being destroyed – from the DA’s Office to the Police Department to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
An Order of Non-Disclosure is for someone who successfully completed Probation on Deferred Adjudication or certain convictions. We can Petition the Court to ORDER your case to be removed from the public record.
