How Long do Felony or Misdemeanor Charges Last?
If you were arrested and charged with a crime in Hawaii but not convicted, you could apply for expungement. However, you must also comply with other requirements. It costs $35 for a first-time offender and $50 for a repeat offender. It may take up to 120 days for the expungement to be finalized. Any charge, both misdemeanors, and felonies that you were convicted of, will stay on your record forever. Only some DUIs and first-time drug offenses are eligible to be expunged.
