How Long do Felony or Misdemeanor Charges Last?
Most misdemeanors can be expunged from your record after only two years, following completion of your sentencing — however, things like domestic abuse or DUIs you have to wait seven years before applying to have them expunged. All felonies can be sealed at some point, but different types of crimes require a more extended waiting period. Some can even be downgraded to a misdemeanor instead of being sealed. They have an extensive list of other requirements you must follow before starting the petition process for expungement.
