A: Yes, unless you fie a Non Disclosure the records can be pulled. If your case can be sealed retain a lawyer,
Everyone has access to the records unless they are sealed. Courts and law enforcement have access to sealed records, and so do the types of people listed in section 411.0765 of the Texas Government Code which you can view here: https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/GV/htm/GV.411.htm#411.0765
Sealed records can also be used by court and prosecution if the defendant is subsequently put on trial for another offense.
