San Angelo Criminal Record Expungement

Because a criminal record can interfere with your life in many ways, including preventing you from getting a job or getting into a school, the state of Texas allows for criminal record clearing under certain circumstances.

Here at the Law Offices of David M. White, our attorney in San Angelo, TX, offers two types of services for clearing criminal history in Texas:

  • Expungment/Expunction (Record Erasing)
  • Nondisclosure (Record Sealing)

Expungement and Expunction:

Expunction, otherwise known as expungement, refers to the literal destruction or deletion by the state of Texas of all records associated with a particular criminal offense. These records include the following:

  • Jail records (including mugshots)
  • All online records of the offense
  • Any paper files that may exist
  • The prosecutor’s files
  • All records that the clerk of the court may have
  • Much more

Criminal record expungement erases your record completely, just as if you were never arrested or charged with the crime. As a result, you can legally say you have never been arrested.

Circumstances that may qualify you for criminal record expungement are the following:

  • Completion of pretrial diversion;
  • Failure to prosecute your case (i.e. it was rejected or never filed);
  • Case dismissal
  • Granting of deferred adjudication for certain Class C misdemeanors.

Our attorney in San Angelo, TX, can help you determine whether you qualify for criminal record expungement. The consultation is entirely free of charge. In addition to a free consultation, we offer you a money back guarantee. In general, you can expect to pay between $950 to $1,500 for this service.

To get an exact quote, call our attorney in San Angelo, TX, today.  Payment plans are available.


Nondisclosure means that your criminal record cannot be viewed by the public, including private employers.

The following records are sealed if your Petition for Nondisclosure is granted:

  • Jail records (including mugshots)
  • All online records of the offense
  • All other records the public may have access to

Once your criminal record is sealed, you can legally say you have never been charged with the crime. You may qualify for nondisclosure once you have completed deferred adjudication probation. This term refers to the deferment of a finding of guilt regarding the crime until after probation. Once you complete probation, the judge dismisses the charge.

Many misdemeanors are eligible for nondisclosure. However, not every misdemeanor will qualify, which is why you need a consultation with our attorney in San Angelo, TX, to determine your eligibility. This consultation is entirely free, and we include a money back guarantee with our services.

In general, you can expect to pay between $750 and $1,250 for this service, though you should call our attorney in San Angelo, TX, to get an exact quote. Payment plans are available.
