Can juvenile crimes be expunged in Virginia and when?

When a juvenile in Virginia is charged with a crime, two of the biggest concerns are the penalties and long-term consequences. The juvenile law system is very different from the adult law system. Of course, it is preferable to have a juvenile acquitted of the charges. If, however, there is a finding of guilty it is possible that a juvenile will have his or her records expunged after a certain period has passed and conditions are met. Knowing the legal requirements for this is important when charged with a crime or after there has been a conviction.
