For Adults:A felony conviction will remain on your criminal record for the rest of your life unless your conviction is over turned or exhonerated by the court or you successfully petition the court and show good cause for an expungement of the felony (very rare)..

Juviniles that are convicted of a felony have their records sealed at age 18 unless they were tried as an adult in which case the felony charge remains on their adult record..
