That means, if any of the following is true, you may be eligible for expunction:
If you were convicted, then you are not eligible.

If you were offered deferred adjudication and successfully completed all terms, you may be able to seal your record through an Order of Nondisclosure in Texas. If that is not an option, then while it is a long shot, and rarely granted, you may seek a full pardon from the Governor.A pardon won't seal your record, but it will allow you to tell employers and others who do background checks that you were granted a pardon of your crime. It also restores certain rights that were lost with the conviction, such as the right to vote.
