Expunging or sealing records

questions & answers

Question: I was arrested on a charge of felony trespassing, but the charge was dismissed. Can I have the records 'set aside'.

Answer: Please read our article on having records expunged or set aside at this link. This article also contains links to the applicable Arizona Revised Statutes. The Arizona statutes only provide for expunging or setting aside convictions, not arrest records where charges were dismissed. You may wish to consult a qualified attorney for assistance and advice regarding your specific situation.
