If you have a criminal record, call Attorney Craig Dameron to find out if you are eligible for an Expunction or Non-Disclosure!  Fort Worth Attorney Craig Dameron advises not to wait to clean your record, do it immediately.  Now, individual’s with a DWI on their record may be able to file a Petition for Non-Disclosure.  The Texas legislator changed the law and a summary is listed below.

HB 3016 – Considered a “Second Chances” Bill

The bill would allow a person convicted of driving while intoxicated (DWI) with a blood-alcohol concentration of less than 0.15 to petition for an order of nondisclosure of criminal history related to the offense.

This person could petition for the order only if the person:

  1. Has never been convicted of or placed on deferred adjudication community supervision for another offense, other than a fine-only traffic offense;
  2. Has successfully completed any imposed community supervision and any term of confinement;
  3. Has paid all fines, costs, and restitution imposed.

 

A person may petition the court that placed the person on community supervision for an order of nondisclosure of criminal history record information under this section only on or after:

  1. The second anniversary of the date of completion of the community supervision, if the person successfully complied with a condition of community supervision that, for a period of not less than six months, restricted the person’s operation of a motor vehicle to a motor vehicle equipped with an Ignition Interlock Device; or
  2. The fifth anniversary of the date of completion of the community supervision, if the court that placed the person on community supervision did not order the person to comply with a condition of operating a vehicle with an Ignition Interlock.

 

A person that completed a sentence following a first DWI conviction, including any term of confinement imposed and payment of all fines, costs, and restitution imposed, may petition the court for an order of nondisclosure of criminal history record information under this section only on or after:

  1. The third anniversary of the date of completion of the person’s sentence, if the person successfully complied with a condition of the sentence that, for a period of not less than six months, restricted the person’s operation of a motor vehicle to a motor vehicle equipped with an Ignition Interlock Device; or
  2. The fifth anniversary of the date of completion of the person’s sentence, if the court that imposed the sentence did not order the person to comply with a condition of operating a vehicle with an Ignition Interlock.
