Federal law allows all juveniles to have or in the least seek to have their records sealed or expunged when they turn 18. In this kids case living in Washington state the process is not automatic and he will have to hope the courts allow his records to be sealed. Having a sealed record is not absolute though, their just not available to the public. If he ever wanted to enlist or commission into the military any recruiter can find out about his past quite easily.
