Question: How Long Will A Wisconsin Sex Crime Conviction Stay On A Person’s Record?
Answer: A conviction for a sexual assault that’s a felony will be on their record for the rest of their life. A conviction for a sexual assault that’s a misdemeanor will also be on their record for the rest of their life. There is only a small chance that either of those would ever be removed from a person’s record, and that would only be what some people call a pardon in Wisconsin. We call it executive clemency. As a practical matter in the history of the modern era of sexual assaults in Wisconsin, no governor has granted a pardon to a person for a sex offense. So in other words, if you are convicted of the charge, it will always be on your criminal record for everyone to see.
