San Tan Justice Court – Expungement and Set Asides
If you have a criminal conviction on your record, Arizona law does not allow for expungement of that record. Fortunately, it allows for the next best thing – a set aside.
If granted by the San Tan Justice Court, a set aside will set aside the judgment of guilt in your case, dismiss the charging instrument, and release you from all penalties and disabilities, with few exceptions.
What this means for you is that although the conviction is not erased, it is essentially crossed out.
When considering if a set aside should be granted, the San Tan Justice Court is required to look at several factors:
Compliance with the sentence requirements
Nature of the offense
Prior or subsequent convictions
Victim input and status of restitution
Time since sentence has been completed
Age at the time of conviction
Any other factor the court thinks is relevant
There are some offenses that can never be set aside.
