Expungement in Essex, N.J.
In New Jersey, expungement is the process of removing records and documents that reference a charge, complaint, arrest, indictment, conviction, detention, trial, or disposition of a criminal violation. The various records to be expunged are generally maintained by courts, county and municipal prosecutors, police departments, correctional facilities and criminal justice agencies. Successful expungement results in the removal of these records to a separate file that is no longer available to other parties, like landlords, school admissions and employers. Not all criminal records are eligible for expungement; criminal homicide and some other violent criminal offenses, some drug crimes, sex offenses and others may not be expunged.
