How Long do Felony or Misdemeanor Charges Last?
Wisconsin charges used to stay on your record forever however due to a new law, after three years, not-guilty and dismissed charges will be removed automatically. Unfortunately for convictions, it is very rare that any ever get expunged, and the defendant must request it during sentencing. The requirements are strict and very few people qualify. You must have been 25 years or younger when the charge was made. Your sentence cannot have been more than six years long, and you have to meet all the obligations of your parole or probation to qualify.
