Arizona allows a person who has been convicted of a criminal offense to apply to judge for an order to set aside the judgment of guilt. To be eligible to have a conviction set aside the individual must have fulfilled the conditions of his/her conditions of probation or discharged the sentence of imprisonment which includes payment of any fines or fees imposed and having paid any restitution owed.
An order setting aside a conviction also restores an individual's right to possess a firearm.
There are some exceptions and limitations to the availability set aside relief. For example if a person is convicted of a dangerous offense or one for which the person is required to register as a sex offender a set aside is not available.
