Mesa Set Aside Attorney (A.R.S. §13-907)
Setting Aside your Criminal Record in Mesa
Under Arizona law, setting aside a judgment of conviction is the process
that refers to obtaining a court order setting aside the charges, dismissing
the case, and relieving an individual of some of the liabilities from
set aside request can also include a request for restoration of civil rights, if needed.
The process is open to individuals who have been convicted of certain
criminal offenses and who have completed all the required conditions of
the sentence imposed by the court, including payment of all financial
obligations arising out of the case.
Set aside is normally not available for those individuals who were convicted
of crimes that involve physically harming another person, dangerous or
deadly weapons, crimes driven by a sexual motivation or crimes where the
victim is under 15 years of age. Individuals are normally informed of
their right to seek a set aside upon discharge from probation and/or prison.
If you or someone you know would like to seek a
set aside order to mitigate the effect of a prior conviction then you should contact a
Mesa criminal defense attorney who can help.
