How Long do Felony or Misdemeanor Charges Last?
Most felonies and misdemeanors will stay on your record forever. Very few ever get expunged. Charges that did not result in any convictions are eligible, but you must have paid all fees, waited at least 180 days, and you cannot have been found not guilty due to insanity. The only types of convictions that can be sealed are ones that were deemed “Deferred Judgment” or the charges were for public intoxication, consumption, or underage possession of alcohol and two years have passed without any further incidents.
