Expungement laws differ throughout the nation. In Texas, you can have a felony expunged from your record in the following circumstances:
Essentially, you cannot expunge the record of a case in which there was a finding of guilt. The only exception is for Class C misdemeanors in which there was deferred adjudication. Unfortunately, you cannot get this charge reduced so far after the fact even though you have had a clean record since.
Chapter 55 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure contains provisions for the expunction of arrest records, court records and criminal history record information. The statute specifically details the requirements and procedures to properly expunge records in Texas.
