If you’ve been convicted of a DUI in Tempe, you may be interested in having that judgment set aside and effectively cleared from your criminal record. While having a DUI set aside can be extremely helpful for anyone concerned about a professional license, college application, or job prospect, it is important to remember what a “set aside” cannot do.
Having a DUI set aside will not get you out of any penalties related to the conviction. In order to qualify for having a judgment set aside, you must have completed your entire sentence, including treatment programs and any probation. And even if your Chandler DUI conviction is set aside by the judge, any penalties through the Department of Motor Vehicles will remain in place, including:
- Ignition interlock devices
- License suspensions
- Points on your license
- Traffic school attendance
