Expunge a Felony: Don’t Live With a Felony on Record If You Don’t Have To

Having a felony on your criminal record can be very damaging to your future. When you have a felony on your record, you are required to disclose the information when you apply for a job or rent an apartment. Anyone who wants to, can get a copy of your criminal record by doing a background check, and they will see that you have a felony on your record. The good news is, that you can see an expunge attorney. These expungement lawyers have the experience and the knowledge to expunge a felony.
The first thing that you need to do, is find out if you qualify for a felony expungement. Not everyone who has one on their record can expunge a felony. You can have a felony expunged if:

  • You were arrested for a crime, but never charged with the crime.
  • If you were charged with a crime, but is is later dismissed due to lack of evidence, lack of available witnesses, or lack of probable cause.
  • If the grand jury failed to indite you.
  • If your case went to trial, and you were found not guilty by a jury or a judge.
  • If someone stole your identity, and was arrested under your name.

If you fall into one of these categories, you have a very good chance of having your felony expunged off of your record. You could contact an expungement lawyer to see if they can take on your case. If you not do fall into any of these categories, you will probably not qualify for an expungement. However, if you received and also completed deferred adjudication for a felony, you can have your record sealed with an Order of Non-Disclosure. An Order of Non-Disclosure means that your record will be sealed so that you do not need to report your felony when applying for a job, an apartment, or a loan. If a background check is done, your felony will not show up. It would be visible however, to a specific number of government agencies.
If you live in Texas, and want to learn more about felony expungement in Texas, you should contact a felony expungement attorney. You can say to an expungement lawyer, “clear my criminal record”, however, it is not always that simple. It would take a meeting with the attorney to discuss your situation and see if they would be able to help you. Every case is different, therefore, you need to give your attorney all of the facts regarding your case, and they would also likely, obtain the information from the arrest, and the court case if there was one. Nobody should live with a felony on their record if they don’t have to.

FBI Offering $10,000 Reward For People Who Aim Laser Pointers at Planes

CBS DC

ST. LOUIS — Silence your cellphone. Save the movie commentary for later. And if you know someone who aims a laser pointer at an airplane, give us a call.

A new FBI campaign unveiled Tuesday will place public safety messages during movie previews and is offering rewards of $10,000 for information leading to the arrest of anyone who threatens aircraft in a laser attack.

The effort builds on a pilot program launched in February in a dozen cities, including Chicago, Houston, New York, Phoenix and Washington.

For the next 90 days, the bureau’s 56 field offices are offering the rewards.

Federal officials said the deliberate targeting of planes by people with handheld lasers has increased significantly in recent years. In 2005, when the FBI and Federal Aviation Administration began tracking such crimes, fewer than 300 laser attacks occurred. By last year, that number had increased to nearly 4,000, according to…
