Motions for Non-Disclosure

Orders of non-disclosure are made available by Texas Government Code § 411.081.

Sec. 411.081. Criminal History Record Information:

Notwithstanding any other provision of this subchapter, if a person is placed on deferred adjudication community supervision under Section 5, Article 42.12, Code of Criminal Procedure, subsequently receives a discharge and dismissal under Section 5(c), Article 42.12, and satisfies the requirements of Subsection (e), the person may petition the court that placed the defendant on deferred adjudication for an order of nondisclosure under this subsection.

If you were convicted of a crime and you successfully completed a deferred adjudication (plea bargain agreement in which punishment is deferred awaiting the outcome of a probationary time period – if the individual successfully completes this agreement, charges are then dismissed), you can petition the courts to sign an order of non-disclosure. If your petition is successful, deferred adjudication case results and details could be blocked from public access.
