  The court deferred adjudication of my guilt and placed me on probation and my probation has since been terminated. Is this record available to potential employers, etc?

Yes, the District Clerk will always have a record of the action taken on your case, even in instances of deferred adjudication. Article 42.12, section 5 (f), Code of Criminal Procedure specifically states that a record in the custody of the District Clerk regarding a case in which a person is granted deferred adjudication is not confidential.


  How can I file for a Petition of Non-Disclosure of my deferred adjudication?
  Unfortunately, our office is unable to provide legal advice regarding non-disclosure for deferred adjudication. However, Texas Law Help has more information you can refer to.


  Someone stole my identity and was arrested and convicted of a criminal offense. Is it possible to have my name removed from these records?
  Yes – Article 55.01 (d), Code of Criminal Procedure explains your entitlement when an arrested person has falsely used your information during an arrest. Article 55.02, Code of Criminal Procedure explains the procedure for expunction of records.  You should contact an attorney to advise you of your legal rights.
