arizona is still trying to tell me i have to register as a sex offender even though the case was re opened and dismissed in the convicting court in wisconsin. threatening me with jail if i dont register for a crime that was dismissed and am presumed innocent of.
i do have a state seal copy of the dismissal.

Your question is internally inconsistent because it says the case was "re opened and dismissed in the CONVICTING court in wisconsin." [sic] (emphasis added).
Did the court in Wisconsin convict you? If so, then you are a sex offender and you must register. Failure to register is a class 4 felony in Arizona.
Or, did the court in Wisconsin charge you, but never convict you? That is a completely different matter.
