A criminal record occurs whenever an individual is convicted of a criminal offense by a court. The criminal conviction will typically always remain on the individual's state criminal record until a legal motion (request) to vacate conviction is brought under RCW 9.96.060 prior to the very same court after a specific time period. For many criminal misdemeanor & gross misdemeanor convictions, the time period is typically 3 to 5 years after court probation ends and after all monetary obligations owed to the court have been fully satisfied. And there need to not be any brand-new criminal convictions/ charges/ arrests since the conviction sought to be vacated. If all these preconditions are met, many municipal & district courts will typically approve movements to vacate a criminal conviction. That results in the individual no longer having a criminal record for that specific conviction.

An individual whose criminal conviction is vacated may lawfully specify on future job applications that he/she has never had a criminal record.
