It depends.  If the individual is convicted of a crime while considered a juvenile (under the age of 18), his or her record will be sealed at the age of 18.  When a record is sealed, individuals other than criminal justice personnel cannot access it.

If the individual is convicted of a crime after he or she has turned 18, the conviction will be on his or her criminal record for life UNLESS 1) the crime is eligible for expungement in the state in which the individual resides; and 2) the individual convicted of the crime files to have his or her record expunged.
