I have at least one felony, and a lot of misdemeanors and status offences...
You did not mention your present age, but assuming you are now an adult and no longer on probation or parole, speak to an experienced local juvenile or adult criminal defense lawyer about eligibility to seal your record. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may be able to ask if the local public defender at the juvenile court where the offenses were heard can file the motion for you.
Generally speaking, Sealing a record hides it from view by private entities, such as potential private employers who have requested a pre-employment records check.It may not hide your records at all in certain situations, such as if you are arrested again for similar offenses, in which case, courts usually consider all prior offenses, including sealed records, when deciding punishment.
Sealing a record does not guarantee that your offense will be kept secret. For example, many local newspapers carry "police log" columns or articles, and list all of the local arrests. As more and more publications and other databases become publicly accessible, it is possible to find out more and more about past arrests without resorting to court files.
In Idaho they most likely are. At the outset of your juvenile case the judge has the opportunity to order your case sealed or open. If you need to check the current status this link will help: http://www.idcourts.us
