One of the most radical changes made by Texas in 2017 was the ability to seal your misdemeanor criminal record, even if you have a conviction. In the past, only if you had deferred adjudication were you allowed to file a non-disclosure petition which would result in keeping the public from seeing your mistake.
Now, most misdemeanor convictions with probation or even jail time may be sealed – including DWIs! There are some exceptions, such as sexual or family violence offenses. Some offenses require waiting periods after you have completed the sentence. Don’t miss a job opportunity or suffer the embarrassment of one mistake.
