    It's important to understand what "expunged" really means. There is a difference between what you can have "expunged" and what can be "non-disclosed" in your two cases. Contact an attorney who knows how to have it done correctly. Buckjohnsonlaw.com

    George’s Answer

    You need to fight the DWI with an experienced attorney who can win the case at trial. Take a look at my website buckjohnsonlaw.com then find a lawyer who will not simply plea the case.

  • I was stopped for no front license plate in Oct 2012. I was arrested for DWI. Did the cop have probable cause to stop me.

    I heard that Texas had a law against driving without a front license, but that there was no punishment for doing so. Since there is no punishment, is it really against the law? Therefore, did the cop have valid probable cause to stop me? Therefo...

    George’s Answer

    Sadly, that's a valid reason to stop a vehicle in Texas. In a DWI case, a jury would expect to hear testimony or see a video of a car driving dangerously. Doesn't sound like the state has that type of evidence against you. You need a lawyer who knows how to try this case to a jury. Take a look at my website buckjohnsonlaw.com and interview several lawyers. Find one you are comfortable with and fight your case.

  • Probation and additional requirements?

    Can a probation officer add additional requirements to your probation above and beyond the courts orders? The conviction was for DWI 1st.

    George’s Answer

    Yes. Probation officers have more power than most people think. I always explain to my clients that keeping a good relationship with your PO is the second most important thing on probation. The first is to ALWAYS show up for your meetings!

  • Does any kind of arrests show on Texas DPS website?

    How likely is it Texas DPS website to show accurate arrest records?

    George’s Answer

    Yes. All arrests will show up unless they have been expunged. Keep in mind that a dismissal or non-prosecution does not mean the records were expunged. You should contact an attorney to expunge your record if it is warranted.

  • What Texas agencies can see an expunged class c misd deferred, as a juvenile, record?

    More importantly can the Texas Board of Nursing see this? Also, before it was expunged, is it possible that this information was sold to private background check companies? Thanks.

    My firm specializes in dealing with both criminal law and the nursing board. If the case was properly expunged, then there should be no record. You should contact an attorney to look into the situation. Feel free to contact my firm for a free initial consultation.

    You need a lawyer with experience in both criminal defense and the nursing board. There are only a few of us in Dallas.
