Question: I was arrested in Pima County for a domestic argument. No charges were filed. I also had a DUI arrest and served a week's jail time. Can these records be expunged, and can fingerprint records be removed?

Answer: See the article on this site about Setting Aside Convictions and Restoring Civil Rights. The Arizona Revised Statutes indicate which offenses qualify to “have the judgment of guilt set aside” (A.R.S. § 13-907) section D notes which crimes cannot be set aside.
