    Most juveniles are eligible to seal their record, which is the closest you will come to achieving the goal of having it off your record. However, you will not be able to seal your record while the registration requirement is still in place. You must address the registration issue first.

Any plea offer will take into account criminal history, which will determine what his standard range is. More likely than not, it will be less than the maximum sentence.

    First time offender waiver is a misleading term for what this statute offers. It's difficult to find a case in which it is beneficial. It's not a reduction to a less serious charge and it doesn't result in a dismissal upon successful completion (unlike drug court). In fact, it usually results in more conditions and probation time.
