Free Pardon Applications

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.  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.

“Expungement processes are generally a way for many small offenders to get a fresh start,” said Assemblyman Reed Gusciora (D-Mercer), one of the bill’s sponsor.

Other sponsors include:

Oliver, Sheila Y. as Primary Sponsor
Jasey, Mila M. as Primary Sponsor
Spencer, L. Grace as Primary Sponsor
Diegnan, Patrick J., Jr. as Co-Sponsor
Prieto, Vincent as Co-Sponsor
Quigley, Joan M. as Co-Sponsor
Green, Jerry as Co-Sponsor
Giblin, Thomas P. as Co-Sponsor
Albano, Nelson T. as Co-Sponsor
Coutinho, Albert as Co-Sponsor
Tucker, Cleopatra G. as Co-Sponsor
