Are There Offenses That Can’t Be Set Aside In Arizona?
When you have a criminal record, it makes it very hard to approach certain aspects of your life. A criminal record is public information and can make it difficult for one to find employment, qualify for a loan, find housing and apply for college. Fortunately, there is a way to set aside or seal your criminal record in Arizona so that you can get back to living your life.
In Arizona, citizens with prior charges and convictions have the opportunity to have their criminal history set aside. It is important to understand that not all previous criminal convictions or charges can be set aside. Some criminal offenses that can’t be set aside in Arizona are:
- Specific Motor Vehicle Offenses.
- Convictions that involve a minor under the age of 15.
- Offenses where there has been a finding of sexual motivation.
- Offenses that require the individual to register as a sex offender.
- Dangerous Offenses
Mr. Benikov was very professional and extremely helpful. He made sure to walk me through the whole process and was always responsive whenever I had any questions. I recommend him to anyone with a legal issue.
Sealing of Arrest, Conviction & Sentencing Records In Arizona
In January of 2023, the state of Arizona passed a law that allows for a person to seal all case records related to a criminal offense they were involved in. The qualifications for a person to have their records sealed are:
- If the person convicted of a criminal offense has completed all of the terms and conditions of the sentence.
- If a person was charged with a criminal offense and the charge was subsequently dismissed or resulted in a not guilty verdict at a trial.
- If a person was arrested for a criminal offense and no charges were filed.
One of the better parts of this new law is that even if the person was charged with a crime, but not convicted, the charge can be sealed. If this is something you or a loved one could benefit from, then you can contact our office for a free evaluation.
