My question involves criminal records for the state of: Arizona
My 19. yr. old dgtr. was given a ticket and now has a misdemeanor for minor possession when she tested a .014 for alcohol. She's never been in trouble before and is a college student studying Education. We're angry/upset as she is with herself over her decision to do something so insane. The ? is what or is there anything we can do @ this point to ever expunge her record in the future? Her hearing was before a Justice of the Peace in N. Mesa who gives tough sentences(understandably)and has never allowed a record to be expunged so we're told by our legal counsel. He gives us no hope. I'm probably grasping for straws here but thought I'd give it a shot. Does anyone have any suggestions? She feels horrible for what she's done and I think(hope)she's learned a very painful lesson thru all this which we're grateful for. Would appreciate any advice/info. you could give us.
Thx in advance.....
