In Texas, just because a case has been dismissed or resulted in an acquittal doesn’t mean your criminal history is clear. The arrest is still visible to potential employers, landlords and the general public. The process of trying to clean up a criminal record is often called “expunction.” In some cases, criminal records can be sealed by a court order, called an “order of nondisclosure.” If your criminal record is expunged or sealed, it will no longer be visible to the general public, including potential employers. In most cases, you can even say that you were never arrested or convicted of a crime.
