For how long is a Certificate good?

A Certificate is considered to be temporary if you are on Probation or a Conditional Discharge at the time the Certificate is issued.  It automatically becomes permanent if you successfully complete Probation/Conditional Discharge.  If you are on Probation and are violated the Certificate may be revoked at the discretion of the Judge.  However, if you are re-sentenced to the State Department of Corrections the Certificate of Relief is automatically revoked.  If you are granted a permanent Certificate it will remain in effect unless you are convicted of another felony.  After another felony conviction it is automatically considered null and void.
