Criminal Offenses and Charges

Expunction in Wilson County


Your criminal record can follow you for the rest of your life, and it can affect your career, your reputation, and your family relationships. Fortunately, Texas law allows for expunction of criminal records in certain cases, including when charges were dismissed, when a suspect was acquitted, when a pretrial diversion program was completed, or when a person received a pardon. In cases when expunction is not available, a person may be able to have their criminal record sealed through a non-disclosure order. Barrera, Cavazos & Powers can help you understand your options for expunction or non-disclosure and work with you to complete the process of having your criminal record cleared.

Nearly everything went wrong for the prosecution in last week's murder trial at the courthouse, and jurors spent little time finding Jeffrey Reyna not guilty in the 2012 stabbing death of Jimmy Garcia.
