Idaho State Police: Expungement Flow Chart Do You Qualify for an Expungement?
Idaho Expungements in a Nutshell
In adult cases, any person who was arrested but not charged within one year of the arrest and having been acquitted of all charges may petition a judge for their arrest record to be expunged. If a DNA profile was included into a database but the case was dismissed, then a person can also send a written request for expungement.
Although not an expungement, successful probationers should consider filing a petition for an order to set-aside the conviction under Idaho Code § 19-2601(4) and have the charge dismissed because the dismissal will restore the probationer’s civil rights, such as voting and gun ownership.
Under Idaho Code § 18-8310, a convicted sex offender who has ten years of law-abiding conduct after conviction can petition for expungement from the sex offender registry, but the conviction will still be a public record.

Iowa Juvenile Criminal Record Expungement in a Nutshell
In the case of juveniles, if any juvenile is taken into custody, they have the right to request expungements of their mug shots and fingerprints. The court however, may not expunge a conviction to a juvenile for certain crimes. Some of them include: aggravated battery, armed robbery, arson, injury to a child, or murder.
People adjudicated as a juvenile may petition for expungement of their records five years after they have finished reporting to their court’s jurisdiction. They can also petition five years after their release from a juvenile corrections facility.
