Texas Statute §55.01 gives some offenders the right to clear their charges after a specific amount of time has passed since the arrest. Some eligible offenders include the following:
For offenders charged with a DWI felony offense, the individual must wait for a minimum of five (5) years post discharge and dismissal of charges to request a petition for non-disclosure.
DWI misdemeanor offenders may request a non-disclosure petition immediately after the charges are dismissed and discharged. After having your record expunged, you are not required to disclose these past offenses to employers or to obtain a license.
Pursuant to Texas Criminal Code §55.02, courts allow eligible offenders to request an expungement including the following information in the request form:
District Clerk Information on Expunction - Visit the District Clerk website of the Collin County site for more information on filing for expunction or non-disclosure of charges. This website provides forms to request expungement. Also, use the court’s case lookup tool to find information on your case.
Expunction of Criminal Records- Visit the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure of the Texas State Legislature for more information on the right to expunction. This website provides waiting requirements for various offenses before an individual is eligible for expunction. Also, find information on how to file for expunction or non-disclosure.
If you were previously arrested and charged with an alcohol-related offense in Collin County, you may now be eligible for expunction. This process can restore some of the freedoms you lost due to your charges. The process is available to both adults and juveniles.
