Expunging Sex Crimes in Texas

June 17, 2015

People who have been charged with sex crimes in Texas may wonder if they will ever be able to have the charges removed from their criminal record. Expungement is a legal process that allows a criminal record to effectively be erased. If expunction is successful, the person who obtained the expunction may be legally allowed to deny that the offense ever took place.

This means that they don’t have to report the offense on job applications and they may have some rights restored. Obviously, this can be very beneficial for people who have been charged with sex crimes. However, not everyone will be eligible for expungement.
