    Default Getting a Misdemeanor B Expunged

    My question involves expungements or pardons for the state of: Texas

    Hi, I am trying to join the Houston Police Department. I got a misdemeanor B in 2001 but I am trying to get it expunged or order of non-disclosure. On the HPD website it states, "No class B misdemeanor convictions within the past ten years preceding the date of application." Can I apply if I got my misdemeanor B expunged or order of non-disclosure? Also do I have to tell them about it on my application? Thx.

    You can only get an order of nondisclosure if your conviction was deferred. You make it sound like your conviction was not deferred.

    Except for a deferred Class C misdemeanor, you can only get an expunction if you first get a pardon.

    On my case I received deferred adjudication for a misdemeanor B. If I get it expunged, could I apply for HPD even though it has not been 10 years and do I have to let them know about it?

    Exclamation Re: Gatting a Misdemeanor B Expunged

    I was having the same problem. I simply emailed the departments I was applying to and emailed the training academy (different in some states) to ask their legal department that same question. And in illinois as long as you werent found guilty and had a withheld judgement you do not fall inside those perimeters of disqualification. HOWEVER YOU Still need to disclose the charge on your record and 10 years is usually the norm for that sort of thing is what im told in the leo field. Again this is what im told from illinois legal department for one of our training facilities doesn't mean it will apply to you.
