I was arrested for a class b misdemeanor of theft 50-500. They were offering me both of these things but I'm not sure which way to turn. The lawyer said if I do pretrial, then I can't get an expungement and I can only seal my records. If I do the deferred adjudication can I get my record expunged? Is expungment or sealing records better? Another thing is that when I search my name on google my arrest and charge shows up on several sites, how fast can I get rid of this or how long can I wait to get the record sealed or expunged? After I complete the deferred probation or the pretrial program do they dismiss my charges? Will the charges still be listed next to my arrest?
