I have a similar question I hope can be answered. I was charged with a deferred adjunction on a Class C Misdemeanor for working as a locksmith without the proper licensing from the 'Private Security Bureau' in Texas - I was only State licensed which wasn't enough. That was two years ago and I am at the end of my probation soon so I will apply to get my record expunged. I want to apply for a locksmith license again, but I want to know who has access to see my expunged record, because I need to appy through the Department of Public Safety's - 'Private Security Bureau' and they were the ones who charged me initially. Also could they legally use my charges against my in my application if my record has been expunged? How long does it take to get the record expunged after applying?
