In 2001 or 2002, I wrote a check in HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS for $180.00 to Kroger's and it bounced. I moved out of the area and was not notified because I failed to change my address. I changed my bank as well when I moved. Although I understand it is completely my fault for not following up on my bank account, HIPPA laws prohibited Kroger's from locating a new address on me. I was stopped for a broken tail light a year later and was arrested for an outstanding warrant for the bounced check. I paid for the fine and left. I never talked to a judge or an attorney. After talking with an employee from the court's office, I found out that none of these charges would have been applied if I had paid for the check the day before I was arrested and that HIPPA laws prevented Kroger's from locating me. Also, because I paid the fine when arrested I would have a Class C Misdemeanor on my record for life. I am not a criminal and had never been arrested before or since then. Can I have my record expunged?
