Non Disclosure Series - Part 2: Misdemeanor Non Disclosure Cases


I have a misdemeanor case where I was placed on deferred adjudication, am I eligible for an order of non disclosure for my records?
Yes, if you qualify.
If you were placed on deferred adjudication, and completed your conditions, you may be eligible for an order of non disclosure. Generally, you are eligible for an order of non disclosure immediately.
However, if you were placed on deferred adjudication for:
Sexual offenses
assaultive offenses
offenses against the family
disorderly conduct & related offenses, or
You will have to fulfill the required waiting period before you can file your petition for non disclosure. The applicable waiting period for the above mentioned offenses is two years from the date the court found you to have completed the conditions of your deferred adjudication.
Next time, I'll discuss which texas agencies and entities will still have access to your criminal records, even though you've received an order of non disclosure from the court.
As always, keep the questions coming!
