Recently, our law firm received a not guilty verdict on a second-degree felony charge in Texas. It’s always a big win when the jury finds your client not guilty, however, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the end of your legal troubles.
Even though you were completely acquitted and received a not guilty verdict, the fact that you were charged and had to go through the criminal system still leaves a negative impact on your criminal record. That’s where expungements come in.
What is an Expungement?
An expungement is the legal process of erasing all the records that mention your arrest and any criminal charges from your record. It’s important to understand that this is different from a criminal record seal, which simply hides your criminal record so that it is not visible to the public.
An expungement erases it from the general public entirely. Having a clean record can make a huge difference. It can make it easier to get a job, rent an apartment, or even apply for a loan. If you have been found not guilty by a jury, you may be eligible for an expungement.
The process of getting an expungement can be complicated and time-consuming, so it’s important to work with an experienced attorney who can help guide you through the process.
That’s where the Austin Hagee Law Firm comes in. Our team of professionals have years of experience handling criminal cases and helping clients get expungements so that they can move on with the confidence that they have a clean criminal record.
To be eligible for an expungement in Texas, you must meet certain requirements, such as:
- The case must have been dismissed, you must have been found not guilty by a jury, or the prosecutor must have declined to prosecute the case.
- You must not have any other criminal convictions on your record.
- You must have completed any court-ordered supervision or community service.
