Expunction? Or, is it Expungement? Same thing and you should look into it

By Brooke Price 

Expunction or expungement, however you refer to it, is a way to permanently clear charges from your criminal record. Getting your record cleared can help you get the jobs you want and give you peace of mind.  It is more important than ever to put your best foot forward as Central Texas inches back towards normalcy and businesses slowly start to reopen.

Instead of just sealing your record (non-disclosure), expungement requires all law enforcement agencies with your records to permanently delete or destroy them, and then certify that it has been done.

How do you know if you are eligible for an expunction? Generally, you are eligible if:

  • It is a class C misdemeanor without a conviction or has been dismissed through deferred adjudication/deferred deposition
  • No formal charges have been brought
  • The charges were dismissed
  • The statute of limitations for your case has run
  • You successfully completed a Pre-Trial Diversion program
  • A jury acquitted you or you received a pardon

Investing in getting your record expunged now can give you opportunities for growth in your career and significantly increase your earning potential in the future.

If you think you are eligible to expunge your criminal record, you need an attorney to guide you through the process and help you know your rights. Contact Law Office of Price & Wiggins, P.C. at (512) 354-1880 for a consultation about sealing or expunging your criminal record throughout Williamson County in Texas.
