How Long do Felony or Misdemeanor Charges Last?
Only qualified individuals can apply for expungement of their criminal history. If you have arrests that you were never sentenced for and you paid all fines, fees and did not incur any others, you can petition for sealing of those records. Some suspended convictions for non-violent offenses can be expunged as well. Sex offenses, other violent offenses, and any domestic abuse offenses will stay on your record forever. If you apply for your misdemeanor offense to be expunged, you cannot have any other crimes, both felonies or misdemeanors.
