Applied for a job that will not hire me because of a wet and wreckless conviction 3 years ago. Is it possible to have that info removed when the job has nothing to do with driving?
Unfortunately the answer is "no." You can move to have the conviction "set aside" but that won't remove the conviction from public view and you would not be able to answer a prospective employer's question about it without acknowledging that you at one point had been convicted. Sorry.
If the conviction arises out of Arizona then unfortunately the answer is no. In Arizona, the best you can do is request that the conviction be "set aside" however it will still come up in a criminal history check. If this conviction is from another state you will want to call an attorney from that state to find out if they have an outlet for you. Good luck.

You will not be able to get it off of your record, but you can move to have it set aside if the offense occurred in Arizona. Even if the offense is set aside you will have to admit that you have been convicted of the offense and it will still appear on your record.
