A: The length of time both since the date of arrest and date of sentencing can both be used as factors for considering a set aside. Although it depends on the judge, even more important is usually the length of time since completing the sentence. This is also a specific factor to be considered under ARS 13-905. It is recommended you consult an attorney. Many criminal and DUI attorneys offer free consultations.
