Setting Aside a Criminal Conviction in Arizona

Posted by Steven Sherick | Mar 23, 2017 | 0 Comments

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.

If you have questions or need assistance in setting aside a criminal conviction.  Please contact us.
