  1. If you successfully completed your community supervision while on deferred then you may be eligible for discharge, withdrawal of your plea of guilty, and a non-disclosure order. A non-disclosure order will effectively seal your records except for certain government entities. You need to hire a lawyer to file a petition for non-disclosure on your behalf.
