Once a person is convicted of a crime, the only way to expunge a record is if the governor pardons the person. Your chances of getting a pardon are slim to none. Some years pardons number in the single digits. You should consult with a criminal defense attorney that also does post conviction work so that he or she can better evaluate your chances of a pardon. Good luck.

The Texas expunction law does not provide for expunction of felony convictions with one possible exception - that is when and if the defendant is pardoned.
