Question: can i get my covictions set aside in arizona if i now live in WI and do i have to be in AZ to apear in court for them to be set aside
The article located here provides helpful information about setting aside felony, misdemeanor, or other criminal convictions. The article contains the following question and response: What happens after a person submits the application to set aside a conviction, to restore civil rights and to restore gun rights?
“The Court will review the application and may grant the request, deny the request, set a hearing or set orders the Court believes is appropriate in the person’s case. For questions about the hearing, call the Court that set the hearing or contact an attorney.”
Arizona Revised Statutes 13-906, and Title 13 identify procedures for setting aside convictions. However, due to the most recent legislative session (the 50th session) it may not be updated with the current law because some changes have been made to the statute. (Updates usually take place in the fall). See HB 2353 for changes. Additionally, the link here provides forms for filling out the required information.
