A criminal record occurs whenever a person is convicted of a criminal offense by a court. The criminal conviction will usually constantly stay on the individual's state rap sheet till a legal motion (demand) to vacate conviction is brought under RCW 9.96.060 before the same court after a specific time period. For the majority of criminal misdemeanor & gross misdemeanor convictions, the time duration is usually 3 to 5 years after court probation ends and after all monetary commitments owed to the court have been fully pleased. And there need to not be any brand-new criminal convictions/ charges/ arrests given that the conviction looked for to be vacated. If all these preconditions are fulfilled, the majority of municipal & district courts will usually grant 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 legally state on future job applications that he/she has never ever had a criminal record.

Under RCW 9.96.060, a person is limited to just one vacation of a misdemeanor criminal conviction. Convictions for DUIs and certain misdemeanor sex crimes can not be vacated.
