$0.88$ or $88\%$

Work Step by Step

We know for a probability that $P(\text{an event happens})=1-P(\text{an event does not happen})$ Note that $12 \%=0.12$. Thus, $P(\text{not cleared by an arrest})=1-P(\text{cleared by an arrest})=1-0.12=0.88$ Hence, $P(\text{Not cleared by an arrest}) =0.88=88\%$
