Expunging or sealing records

questions & answers

Question: I have a first time conviction DUI and it reads as a felony. I have done my time, paid my fines and attended my AA classes. It has been five years since my conviction. Can my record be expunged? I live in Hawaii and my lic is suspended and jobs out here require a drivers lic. Is there a way I can get my record cleared so I can reinstate my drivers lic?

Answer: In order to Expunge your DUI record in Arizona, file an application with the court requesting that your judgment of conviction be set aside and the charges dismissed.If you were placed on probation, file the application after you have successfully completed the terms of your probation. If you served time in any Department of Corrections facility, you must wait two years after discharge before you can file you application. If your case involved the infliction of serious physical injury on another person, you are prohibited from receiving this relief.
