Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thank you for your inquiry. I'd like to get some more details on your case. Perhaps it would be helpful to have a phone call to discuss. I can set that up if you would like.
How old was the student at the time? Did you plead to a felony or misdemeanor? Was there only one charge? What was the charge?
Ok. The judge will not dismiss the charge at the completion of your probation. You've already pleased guilty and been sentenced.
Based on the crime you've pleased guilty to, and the age of the victim, you may be able to have the conviction "set aside."
Arizona does not have an expungement law, but it does provide for certain crimes to be set aside. A set aside won’t remove the charge or conviction from your criminal record. However, anyone who checks your criminal record -- for example, a potential employer -- will also see the set aside order. In other words, they will know that you satisfied all the conditions of your probation or sentence, that a court vacated the conviction, and that all the charges against you were dismissed.
To request a set aside, you may petition the court upon the completion of your probation and ask the judge to set aside the conviction.
I hope this helps.
That's not very likely unless you have grounds to have the sentence reduced. I'd advise you hire an attorney to do so.
If you have any further questions, I'd be happy to assist.
