Pretrial Diversion Program 
Did you know that most first time offender’s charges with a non-violent offense qualify to have their case dismissed upon successful completion of a Pretrial Diversion Program? Denton County has such a program, and the attorneys at VICTORIA BARR LAW FIRM know how to set clients up for admission and successful completion of PTD. After a dismissal, our attorneys take the extra-legal steps necessary to have all records related to our clients’ arrests destroyed by seeking an Expunction.

Sealing Records 
Did you know that if you were never convicted of an offense you can petition to have records related to your arrest and prosecution sealed by an order of non-disclosure or destroyed altogether by an order of expunction? When a record is sealed or expunged, you may legally deny that your arrest ever occurred. Sealing and expunging records is a crucial step in the process of moving forward with life after an arrest because it protects your character and reputation as you seek an education, professional licensing, employment, housing, and personal relationships.

Sex Crimes 
Sex crimes are aggressively-prosecuted offenses that often result in lengthy prison time and mandatory sex offender registration. If you are convicted of a sex offense, you may also be required to abide by sex offender probation terms which require regular polygraph examination and sexual therapy and counseling. Protect yourself and your good name by contacting with VICTORIA BARR LAW FIRM immediately if you ever have a concern or fear about a sex charge in Denton County.

Theft Crimes 
Theft, burglary, robbery, identity or credit/debit card abuse are all examples of theft-related crimes. In Texas, theft is considered a crime of “moral turpitude”. Theft is also enhanceable. This means that multiple charges, even for what would be a misdemeanor theft, can be enhanced to a felony if you have previously been convicted. VICTORIA BARR LAW FIRM handles theft-related charges with the utmost care to protect our clients’ present and future interests.
