Today's New Blawg

Michael Lowe is a criminal defense attorney in Dallas, TX, and writes Dallas Lawyer. Michael does a good deal of expunction work (see Texas Expunction of Criminal Records):

Upon the petition of a criminal defendant, a court can direct certain law enforcement agencies to destroy all records associated with an arrest and subsequent prosecution. Many times the court will specifically direct law enforcement agencies to destroy jail records, police reports, prosecution reports and court files. In addition, a successful expungement petitioner, can legally deny ever having been arrested for or charged with the criminal offense for which he is receiving the expunction.

This process was a new one on me. Thanks Michael, for the enlightenment, and I hope you keep blogging in connection with your practice.
