CRIMINAL RECORD EXPUNGEMENT (DELETION) INFORMATION
A criminal record occurs whenever a person is convicted of a criminal offense by a court. The criminal conviction will then always remain on the person's Washington State state criminal record unless a legal motion (request) to vacate conviction is brought under RCW 9.96.060 before the same court after a certain time period has elapsed.
For most criminal misdemeanor & gross misdemeanor convictions, the time period is usually 3 to 5 years after court probation ends, and after all financial obligations owed to the court have been fully satisfied. And there must not be any new criminal convictions / charges / arrests since the conviction sought to be vacated. If all these preconditions are met, most municipal & district courts will usually grant motions to vacate a criminal conviction. That results in the person no longer having a criminal record for that particular conviction.
A person whose criminal conviction is vacated may lawfully state on future job applications that he/she has never had a criminal record.
Under RCW 9.96.060 almost all convictions for misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor offenses can be vacated.
However, convictions for DUIs and certain misdemeanor sex crimes cannot be vacated.
CRIMINAL HISTORY REMOVAL INFORMATION
Criminal history consists of police non-conviction data (arrest records, jail booking records, fingerprint records, photos, mugshots, etc.) which are created whenever a person is arrested / jailed but no criminal charges are ever filed in court. Such non-conviction data are held indefinitely by the local arresting police agency & the Washington State Patrol Criminal History Section in Olympia, WA.
Under RCW 10.97.060 and WAC 446-16-025, persons may make written requests to expunge (delete) such police non-conviction data. These requests must be made to both the local arresting police agency and to the Washington State Patrol Criminal History Section in Olympia, WA. Such requests will usually be granted if over two years have elapsed since dismissal of the charge or over 3 years have passed since the date of the old arrest with no charge filed.
PROTECT YOUR JOB AND FUTURE.
Police non-conviction data (arrest / jail records) can be used by landlords to deny rental housing and by employers to deny job applications & job promotions.
