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.
