Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

DUI Set Aside – Pioneer Justice Court
Unfortunately for many, Arizona does not allow for expungement of criminal convictions. However, if you have been convicted of a crime in the Pioneer Justice Court, your next best option is to petition for a set aside.
A set aside, as provided for in Arizona Revised Statutes § 13-907, means that the Pioneer Justice Court will set aside the judgment of guilt in your case, dismiss the complaint, and order your released from all penalties and disabilities resulting from your conviction, excluding some specific department of transportation and game and fish commission ones.
If granted, you can essentially say that your case was dismissed as the charging instrument gets dismissed.
The Pioneer Justice Court looks at several factors in deciding set asides:
- The nature of the offense
- Compliance with the sentence
- Subsequent or prior convictions
- Input from the victim and restitution balance if any
- Time since sentence completed
- Any other factor the Court finds relevant.
Some offenses can never be set aside, however.
