How long does this stay on my record?

I was 19 years old when i was charged with minor consumption (underage drinking) and fleeing a peace officer by means other than a motor vehicle (i ran). Since then i've bee denied to a couple jobs due to my criminal background and im curious as to if this ever leaves my record. Additional Info: This happened 4 months ago. I also have one more minor consumption on my record with no other charges attached.
