Texas Misdemeanor Expungement Attorneys
If you were charged with a Class C Misdemeanor in Texas and were placed on deferred adjudication or plead guilty to an alcohol crime, you may be eligible for expungement.

Common Class C Misdemeanors Eligible for Expunction
In Texas, expungement is typically only available to those who have not been found guilty or plead guilty or no contest to a crime. Class C misdemeanors are the exception to this rule. Some common Class C misdemeanors include:
- Simple Assault
- Theft under $50
- Public Intoxication
- Disorderly Conduct
Class C misdemeanor alcohol crimes like minor in possession or public intoxication can be expunged even if you plead guilty. If you are under 21, however, you must wait until you are 21 to file for expunction. Many minor drug offenses are also eligible for expungement. In fact, drug offenses are often easier to expunge than other charges. The best way to determine if your misdemeanor can be expunged is to consult with a knowledgeable attorney. At The Law Offices of Torres & Thomas, we are experienced in working with alcohol and drug crime expungements. We can examine your record at a free consultation to determine if it can be cleared.
