Lynnwood, WA: RAP SHEET EXPUNGE DETAILS
A rap sheet takes place whenever an individual is convicted of a crime by a court. The criminal conviction will usually always stay on the individual's state criminal record until a legal movement (demand) to vacate conviction is brought under RCW 9.96.060 prior to the exact same court after a particular time period. For most criminal misdemeanor & gross misdemeanor convictions, the time duration is usually 3 to 5 years after court probation ends and after all monetary responsibilities owed to the court have been fully satisfied. And there need to not be any new criminal convictions/ charges/ arrests considering that the conviction sought to be vacated. If all these preconditions are fulfilled, most local & district courts will usually give movements to vacate a criminal conviction. That leads to the individual no longer having a criminal record for that specific conviction.
A person whose criminal conviction is vacated may lawfully state on future task applications that he/she has never ever had a criminal record.
Under RCW 9.96.060, an individual is restricted to just one getaway of a misdemeanor criminal conviction. Convictions for DUIs and particular misdemeanor sex crimes can not be vacated.
