Iowa Admin. Code r. 661-82.301 - Juvenile fingerprints and criminal histories

(1) Authority to fingerprint. A law enforcement agency shall fingerprint and photograph any juvenile who has been taken into custody and charged with the commission of an offense which would be a serious misdemeanor, aggravated misdemeanor or felony if committed by an adult. Fingerprints of juveniles taken pursuant to this subrule shall be submitted to the division of criminal investigation.
(2) Fingerprints of juveniles waived to adult court. If jurisdiction over a juvenile suspect has been transferred from juvenile court to adult court, then fingerprints of that suspect taken pursuant to Iowa Code section 232.148 and transmitted to the division of criminal investigation shall be handled by the division in the same manner as fingerprints of adult suspects are handled, and the fingerprints are subject to the same provisions of law and these rules which govern fingerprints of adult criminal suspects.
(3) Fingerprints entered into automated fingerprint identification system (AFIS). Fingerprints of juveniles shall be entered into the AFIS maintained by the department of public safety.
(4) Juvenile criminal histories.
a. A fingerprint card received for a juvenile suspect shall be used to establish a criminal history record for the suspect.
b. Criminal histories of juveniles over whom jurisdiction has been transferred from juvenile court to adult court shall be handled in the same manner as criminal histories of adults.
c. Criminal histories of juveniles who remain under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court shall be maintained only if the juvenile is adjudicated delinquent based upon an offense which would be a serious or aggravated misdemeanor or felony if committed by an adult. The criminal history record established in response to the division's receiving a fingerprint card shall be expunged if the delinquency petition is dismissed. Juvenile court judges shall order that a juvenile be fingerprinted and the prints submitted to the division of criminal investigation if the juvenile has been adjudicated delinquent for an offense which would be a serious or aggravated misdemeanor or felony if committed by an adult.
d. Criminal history data of juveniles over whom jurisdiction has not been transferred from juvenile court to adult court shall be expunged when the subject reaches the age of 21 unless the subject has been convicted of a serious or aggravated misdemeanor or a felony when the subject was between the ages of 18 and 21 or unless the retention of the records is necessary for the purpose of administering Iowa Code chapter 692A. If the subject has been convicted of a serious or aggravated misdemeanor or a felony when the subject was between the ages of 18 and 21, the criminal history record shall be maintained in the same manner as adult criminal history data.
