N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6

2C:52-6. Arrests not resulting in conviction

 

<Text of section effective until January 4, 2014.>

a. In all cases, except as herein provided, wherein a person has been arrested or held to answer for a crime, disorderly persons offense, petty disorderly persons offense or municipal ordinance violation under the laws of this State or of any governmental entity thereof and against whom proceedings were dismissed, or who was acquitted, or who was discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt, may at any time following the disposition of proceedings, present a duly verified petition as provided in section 2C:52-7 to the Superior Court in the county in which the disposition occurred praying that records of such arrest and all records and information pertaining thereto be expunged.

b. Any person who has had charges dismissed against him pursuant to P.L.1970, c. 226, § 27 (C. 24:21-27)1 or pursuant to a program of supervisory treatment, shall be barred from the relief provided in this section until 6 months after the entry of the order of dismissal.

c. Any person who has been arrested or held to answer for a crime shall be barred from the relief provided in this section where the dismissal, discharge, or acquittal resulted from a determination that the person was insane or lacked the mental capacity to commit the crime charged.


Keep in mind that there is no right to expungement, and an applicant may be denied relief in the courts discretion. Interpretation of the New Jersey Expungement Statutes can be complex and, like all criminal charges, must be addressed promptly and aggressively by experienced and skilled criminal defense lawyers who understand New Jersey law and know the criminal justice system.  Put your trust in a firm that has been to every level of the judicial system, and breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you are in good hands. Take the first step to fighting your criminal charge,
