Finding Fresh Hope Through Expungement And The First-Time Offender Program
Texas is notorious for being tough on crimes. Texas laws carry severe penalties for many offenses. This can be a harsh reality to face for someone who is in trouble with the law for the first time. Whether youthful inexperience, social circumstances or addiction is to blame, a first-time conviction can crush your hopes and change your life drastically.
To explore your options for a better outcome, discuss your situation in-depth with a caring, experienced defense attorney. Contact NO Law Firm, PLLC to learn about our reputation for kindness and genuineness toward our clients, including those who have been convicted or are at risk of being convicted of crimes.
An Avenue Of Hope: First-Time Offender Programs
Thankfully, Texas offers many first-time offenders special programs that are designed to help them avoid criminal convictions. Only people accused of nonviolent crimes qualify for these programs. Drug possession charges can often be resolved through the successful completion of one of the first-time offender programs. If you are ready to give your best efforts, we are ready to stand beside you through the process.
Another Avenue Of Hope: Expungement
Perhaps you already have an arrest or conviction on the books. You may have already experienced consequences such as limitations on employment, educational opportunities and access to housing. Criminal records that are often eligible for expungement include the following:
- Arrests that did not result in criminal charges
- Criminal charges that have been dismissed
- Criminal charges resulting in not guilty verdicts
- Criminal charges resulting in acquittals
- Arrests when a person’s name appeared by mistake
- Some juvenile misdemeanors
