Utah Penal Code Section 78A-6-1105 advises that you may petition the court for the expungement of your juvenile court record if you are at least 18 years old and one year has passed since termination of the jurisdiction of the juvenile court or one year has passed from unconditional release from custody. If you do not meet these requirements, the court may grant you a waiver if the court finds that there is a good enough reason for such waiver.
Furthermore, in order for your petition to be granted, you must not have been convicted of the following offenses since the termination of the juvenile courts jurisdiction or your release from custody: 1) a felony; or 2) a misdemeanor involving moral turpitude. Also you should have no pending proceedings involving a felony or a misdemeanor of moral turpitude. Additionally, the court may not expunge a juvenile court record if it is for aggravated murder or murder.
Once the petition is filed a hearing date will be set. The court will notify both the district attorney and any victims of your petition for expungement. They will be allowed to testify at this hearing if they want to.
The court will look at several factors when deciding whether to grant your petition for expungement. The court will attempt to determine if you are rehabilitated. The court will consider your response to programs and treatment, your behavior subsequent to adjudication, and the nature and seriousness of the conduct. Once the court decides to grant your petition, it will order sealed all of your records under the control of the juvenile court. Once that order is made, the proceedings in your case shall be considered never to have happened and you may reply accordingly if anyone asks you about the matter.
Your petition should take about 4 to 6 months to process depending on the complexity of your case and if the court has received many cases before yours.
