    Answered . Convictions under Texas law are not expungeable under Texas law. If you are desparate for an expunction, you will need to seek a pardon. Pardoned offenses do fall under current expunction law. Applying for a pardon is a bit complicated. I suggest that you see an attorney for assistance in doing that if that is how you want to go.
