I'm confused, my juvenile record has never been viewable by the public. I have passed many background checks for jobs etc. I have never been required to disclose any information about my juvenile record which was a felony and 2 misdemeanors. And on the paper from the courts it specifically says if EVER asked about any arrests or convictions you can lawfully answer no. Again this is in Ohio, is it different than in Texas?

Sealing your records seals them from the public viewing them, but government agencices can still see them. I'm not sure what the differences between Ohio law and Texas law concerning sealing of records are, but as a general rule; sealing of records seals them from the public but not the government.
