Orders of Nondisclosure in Texas by Bo Kalabus

An indivifual who two years after sucessfully completes deferred adjudication community supervision may petition the court for an order of nondisclosure under Government Code § 411.081. An order of nondisclosure prohibits criminal justice agencies from disclosing to the public, criminal history record information related to a particular offense.

Criminal history record information subject to an order of nondisclosure is excepted from required disclosure under the Public Information Act. However, criminal justice agencies are permitted to release criminal history record information subject to an order of nondisclosure to criminal justice agencies, authorized noncriminal justice agencies (too long to list here), and the individual who is the subject of the criminal history record information.

An individual with a criminal record should contact an attorney to determine whether they are eliglible for an order of nondisclosure.
