SEALING JUVENILE RECORDS IN TEXAS
You may want your youthful discretions kept from coloring how people evaluate you as an adult. In this instance, the Texas Family Code is your refuge. Section 58.003 allows to seal criminal record in Texas —sometimes. This option comes loaded with conditions and exceptions. At least two years must have lapsed since the last official action has taken place on your case, your charge must not have been a violent offense, and you must not have been “convicted of a felony or misdemeanor involving moral turpitude.” Sometimes your juvenile records in Texas are automatically sealed or under restricted access. Even when sealed, your juvenile records in Texas may still be accessed by various law enforcement departments and may become unsealed for certain reasons depending on your circumstances.
