How Long do Felony or Misdemeanor Charges Last?
Most felonies and misdemeanors will remain on your criminal record forever. North Dakota does allow first time offenders and people who were charged but not convicted to have their records sealed. You must wait two years after your charges to apply. If you have a minor felony, you can request that it be downgraded to a misdemeanor. North Dakota also allows juvenile records to be completely sealed, so they do not show up in criminal reports.
