Tarrant County is again offering to erase or seal the criminal records of eligible individuals in an upcoming program. The Expunction and Nondisclosure Clinic, for the first time in its five years, will be virtual so people don’t have to leave their homes to clean their records. The deadline to submit an application is April 5, and those who qualify will hear from volunteer attorneys between April 3 and May 7, according to a news release from the office of District Attorney Sharen Wilson. There are several situations where a person can qualify for expunction, or the legal removing of arrests or charges, the release states. That includes if a charge was dismissed or wasn’t filed by a grand jury, or if the person was acquitted.
