When are criminal nondisclosures in Texas allowed? Attorney Benson Varghese answers this question in this short video.
Criminal nondisclosures in Texas are allowed under certain circumstances. That is generally when an offense that is a Class B misdemeanor or greater, including felony offenses, have been deferred and ultimately dismissed without a conviction. That is different from a case being dismissed without being placed on deferred. There is also, for felonies, a waiting period of five years that must pass after the case has been dismissed before you are eligible for a nondisclosure.
