Texas Criminal History Record

Texas criminal history record
What to do about a criminal record in Texas?

Someone I know was found in violation of his parole in 1999. This was filed on his criminal history as a conviction even though he never went to court. His initial conviction was in 1995. This 1999 “conviction” is preventing him from getting a job where the employer goes back 10 years, instead of the normal 7. Is there anything that can be done about this?
It has been over 7 years, the only reason this is a problem is the company he is applying for is going back 10 years. The last offense was in 1999.

Hello Cougar. I know this isnt what you want to hear, but when a person is convicted and is on parole, any violation constitutes another conviction. This is an extension of the crime that they already have been to court over and had been found guilty. A second appearence in court would only occur if another crime had been committed, which they would then go through the standard arraignment process of law. In the situation you are referring to, even a TPV is considered another conviction. Your friend will just have to wait out the additional time for his record to be cleared of the 7 year period. I hope this proves helpful to you.
