Experienced Legal Guidance In Clearing Your Texas Arrest Record
Many people have the misconception that if they are found “not guilty” or their case is dismissed or never filed, the records no longer exist. This is not true!
Because of the Texas Open Records Act, arrest records can also be obtained by the public for private use. This means future employers and landlords can easily discover your prior criminal record by simply searching for your name via the websites of local counties or businesses like PublicData.com.
Obviously, you do not want future or current employers and landlords to find out about your past legal problems, especially when they don’t have to know! Why? Because when they discover that you have a criminal record, they will simply move on. In their mind, you have a criminal history and they want no association with that.
