New Jersey Expungement Bill Introduced In Committee
Former offenders might be able to have their record automatically expunged if a bill recently discussed in the New Jersey Assembly Judiciary Committee is enacted. Â The bill (A1060) would automatically expunge records for those convicted of disorderly persons offenses after 3 years. Currently, those convicted of disorderly conduct have to petition the court for expungement after 5 years.
â€śExpungement processes are generally a way for many small offenders to get a fresh start,â€ť said Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer), one of the billâ€™s sponsor.
