I was arrested for interfering with a 911 call several years back, both parties involved admitted I did not know that it was a call to 911, my attorney told me it would be best to plead no contest and get deferred adjudication and it would drop of my record. I was dumb and believed him.
Well now I am looking for a new job and keep failing the background checks. After some research I have found that both the arrest and court records are on my criminal history. I would like to get this taken care of and from what I have read I have to get it seal under a non-discloser plea.
I donít want this on my record and after some research I found out that in TX it has to be proven that I knowingly interrupted the 911 call, which I understand to mean that I had to know it was a 911 call or that I prevented the person from calling 911. Since I did not know the call was to 911 can I get this over turned or thrown out?
Can I go back to court and get this thrown out? Or would it be better to pursue a non-discloser plea, and better yet can I get it expunged?
And can I do this myself without having to pay another lawyer that charge me thousands of dollars and once again only do whats easiest for the lawyer.
