Morris County, NJ Expungement Attorneys
All crimes for which you are accused remain on your criminal record forever unless you take action to remove them. Whether charges are dismissed, you received a conditional discharge or were admitted into Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) you still have a criminal record.
Expungement is particularly beneficial to young individuals who made a minor mistake in the past that will destroy their future. Competition to get into certain schools is at an all time high and many with years of experience and no criminal records are having great difficulty obtaining good jobs. Before missing a lifetime of opportunities, you should seek expungement as soon as you are eligible.
A juvenile expungement is different than an adult expungement. You can have your whole juvenile record expunged if at least 5 years have passed since you meet the following criteria:
- You have been released from any custodial sentence or supervisory program
- You have had no other convictions, juvenile or adult, in the last 5 years
- You have never been convicted of an offense which would disqualify you from expungement if you had been sentenced as an adult.
- You have never obtained an expungement as an adult
- You have never had the benefit of Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) or conditional discharge to dispose of an adult offense.
Juvenile Drug Offenders and Expungement
Unlike the 5-10 years adult offenders must wait for expungement of drug offenses, juveniles are eligible for expungement of drug offenses after only one year from the time they complete probation or parole or are discharged from custody. However, a juvenile who has violated probation or parole provisions, been subject to other convictions, received PTI or a conditional discharge for other matters, may be ineligible for expungement.
