EXPUNCTION OF CRIMINAL RECORDS.
Expunction is defined as the removal of criminal arrest and conviction records from the State law
enforcement computers. Generally, this is a very good thing. In Texas, a person who is acquitted at trial is
generally entitled to have a criminal arrest record for that offense expunged upon motion following trial. A
common misconception in Texas is that a person who pleads guilty to a charge, or who receives a form of
community supervision known as deferred adjudication, may have their record expunged. This last statement
is NOT true - if you plead guilty or receive deferred adjudication, you may not have your record expunged.
