The charge to which you entered a plea agreement is a fourth degree crime, and as such, is a felony. In New Jersey, crimes of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th degrees are all considered felonies.
Best of luck to you!

Any crime in New Jersey that is described as a degree (1st degree, 2nd degree, etc.) is a indictable offense, referred to in other states as a felony. In New Jersey, a misdemeanor is known as a "disorderly persons offense".
You were convicted of a felony, which ordinarily takes 10 years to expunge.
I agree that it is considered a felony. Note however that if the victim was a minor, then the offense cannot be expunged, even after 10 years.
