The criminal conviction will typically always stay on the person's state rap sheet until a legal motion (request) to vacate conviction is brought under RCW 9.96.060 before the exact same court after a specific time period. For the majority of criminal misdemeanor & gross misdemeanor convictions, the time duration is typically 3 to 5 years after court probation ends and after all financial responsibilities owed to the court have been totally pleased. And there must not be any brand-new criminal convictions/ charges/ arrests since the conviction looked for to be vacated.
