Evergreen, WA: RAP SHEET EXPUNGE INFORMATION

The criminal conviction will typically always remain on the person's state criminal record until a legal motion (request) to vacate conviction is brought under RCW 9.96.060 before the very same court after a particular 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 financial commitments owed to the court have been completely pleased. And there should not be any new criminal convictions/ charges/ arrests given that the conviction sought to be vacated. If all these prerequisites are fulfilled, many local & district courts will typically grant motions to vacate a criminal conviction. That results in the person no longer having a criminal record for that particular conviction.
