I think 7 years.

Above incorrect,

It will stay on your record until after death, unless you get it sealed or expunged. Only juvenile cases are subject to sealing, and only a citation for public intoxication is expungeable in Iowa.

"Only a citation for public intoxication is expungeable in Iowa." Not true. I received a citation for disorderly conduct when I was a stupid sophomore at Iowa. It was expunged from my record after 6 months of good behavior. To be clear, the charges weren't dropped. But six months after the conviction it was expunged.
