Yes upon release for all offenders
Yes upon release for non-violent offenders and never for violent offenders
Yes upon releases for non-violent offenders and a certain amount of time for violent offenses.
Yes after 1-5 years
Yes after 6-10 years
Yes after 11-15 years
Yes after 16-20 years
Yes after 21-30 years
Yes but time of record deletion should depend on offense.
Criminal records should never be erased.
I can think of several cases where it would be major foolishness to erase past records. How about alarm/security companies. I'm sure they'd like to know if someone applying had a history of burglary and theft. How about schools? I'm sure they would need to know if a prosepective hire has a record of molesting children.
