Expunging or sealing records

questions & answers

Question: I plead guilty and paid a fine for a class 2 watercraft incident. The Magistrate has granted the set aside entailing "that defendant be released from all penalties and disabilities pursuant to A.R.S. 13-907". Do I need to disclose my misdemeanor for graduate school applications and even future employers even though it has been set aside for judgement?

Answer: A.R.S. 13-907 states: D. This section does not apply to a person who was convicted of a criminal offense: 1. Involving a dangerous offense. You may want to discuss this with an attorney to find out if this information must be disclosed for future employers and graduate school.
