Guidelines For Expungement Of Arizona Convictions And Arrest Records
If you complete your probation, jail, or prison sentence, depending on the severity of the charge, and you have no other convictions for a period of three months to six years after completion, you may qualify to set aside the charge. This option is available for the vast majority of criminal offenses. However, it is not available for the following:
- Weapons charges (serious injury with a gun)
- Traffic crimes, including DUI
- Sex crimes (sexual assault, rape)
- Dangerous crimes against children
As an experienced defense attorney, Mr. Baker has a thorough understanding of the laws concerning the setting aside of prior convictions. If your conviction can be set aside, he will do everything he can to make it happen for you immediately upon being retained.
