Legal Question in Criminal Law in Texas

Is is possible to get a non-disclosure for an injury to child case that was dismissed. The defendant did plea guilty to class c misdemeanor disorderly conduct, but the injury case is considered "dismissed". There was no deferred or straight probation but just a small fine for the disorderly conduct. Asking because the defendant spoke with a lawyer who stated that they could get an order of non-disclosure for the injury to a child arrest. Is this true or a waste of money?

Talk with more lawyers. If the case was dismissed, it is NOT subject to non-disclosure. It MAY be subject to expunction, although a lawyer would have to look closely at the records. (If the 2 cases you mention are separate, then it could be expunged.) Whoever told you nondisclosure is the way to go on a dismissed case is WRONG.
