Expungement for College Students in San Antonio

San Antonio Expungement for College Students Attorney

Texas Expunction Lawyers Serving University Students

If you are currently attending college in South Texas, you are probably looking forward to graduating and starting your career. Applying for that post-university job may require a background check or at least a question or two about your criminal history on the application. Too often, however, college students are shocked to learn that an arrest that they thought had been taken care of is still raising concerns and causing problems. We are Clear My Record San Antonio, and we are ready to help you leave your arrests in the past, paving the way for you to start your new career.

Expunging Young Adult Records

Alongside the academic rigors of college life, there are countless ways in which you may find yourself in trouble with the law. For many college students, an arrest for public intoxication or minor drug possession may seem like a small matter, especially if formal charges are never filed, or they are eventually dismissed. The problem, however, is that, without taking action, the arrest will remain on your record permanently. "This one time in college," may be a fun way to start a nostalgic story, but it would hardly be a valid excuse to a prospective employer.

Texas Expungements 101

The process of expungement, also known as expunction, can remove the record of an arrest and prosecution from your criminal history, making it as though you were never arrested. As a college student, you may qualify to have your arrest record expunged if:

  • You were arrested but never formally charged;
  • You were charged but the charges were dismissed;
  • You went to trial and were acquitted;
  • You were charged with a Class C misdemeanor and received deferred adjudication.

If received deferred adjudication for any other offense, you will not qualify for expungement, but you may be eligible for an Order of Nondisclosure, making it impossible for most employers to access your record. However, if you pleaded guilty or were convicted and were sentenced or given straight probation, your arrest will remain a part of your criminal history.
