    It depends on who is looking at the record. A judge would have access to it forever. Other people and places wouldnt be able to see it unless its status was still pending.

    ddepends on what charge. if its a felony then you will have to go to court to get it taken off. a misdameanor I think 5 years

    Basically, it stays there forever until you go through the arduous process of having it removed.

    The fact that a charge is made, will remain in police files for life.

    if you were charged and printed and mugged—it will stay there even if you were found not guilty or the charges were dropped==there are certain things that can be espohged from your record==meaning it can be removed through a court order===you would need an attorney =to do this for you.

    - basically there forever
    – however, if it’s your only offense…and it wasn’t as big then it is usually not much of concern.
    – if you happen to be charged again with something, the judge WILL look back on your records. If it is anything relavent to what you did before, it IS a concern.

    Given the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven, a charge that doesn’t conclude in a conviction should be expunged.
    Certainly in the worst case scenario ,the court can be petitioned in order for the charge(s) to be removed.

    Forever. But only few people will have access to it.

    I had a criminal charge about 13 yrs ago and and it was dropped and never brought up again even when a criminal check was done… I have done well for myself so don’t worry about it ok.
