A rap sheet happens whenever an individual is founded guilty of a criminal offense by a court. The criminal conviction will normally always remain on the individual's state criminal record until a legal motion (demand) to vacate conviction is brought under RCW 9.96.060 before the exact same court after a particular period. For most criminal misdemeanor & gross misdemeanor convictions, the time period is normally 3 to 5 years after court probation ends and after all monetary obligations owed to the court have actually been fully pleased. And there should not be any brand-new criminal convictions/ charges/ arrests since the conviction sought to be vacated. If all these preconditions are met, most municipal & district courts will normally grant motions to vacate a criminal conviction. That leads to the individual no longer having a criminal record for that specific conviction.
