3. Expungement of Arrests Not Resulting in Conviction (N.J.S.A. 2C: 52-6)Usually Expungement of criminal charges that are dismissed at first appearance.
The new law sets forth procedures to expunge all records and information of an arrest or charge when a person has been arrested or held to answer for a crime, disorderly persons offense, petty disorderly persons offense, or municipal ordinance violation, where the proceedings were dismissed; the person was acquitted, or the person was discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt in Municipal Court or Superior Court. Regardless of whether the proceedings were in Municipal Court or Superior Court, no fee will be charged for these expungements on or after April 18, 2016.
An expungement under this amendment to the statute shall not be ordered where the dismissal, acquittal, or discharge resulted from a plea bargain agreement involving the conviction for other charges. This bar does not apply once the conviction is itself expunged. See N.J.S.A. 2C: 52-6a(3). ?
It should be noted that the law did not amend the expungement procedures for persons who have had charges dismissed pursuant to the Pretrial Intervention (PTI) program, a conditional discharge (N.J.S.A. 2C: 36A-1), or Conditional Dismissal program (N.J.S.A.2C: 43-13.1 et al.). Such petitions shall be barred from expungement until six months after entry of the order of dismissal. There will be no fee for these expungements. See N.J.S.A. 2C: 52-6c.
A. Dismissal, Acquittal, or Discharge without a Conviction or Finding of Guilt on or after April18, 2016
1. Municipal Court Proceedings dismissal
Where the proceedings were dismissed, the person was acquitted, or the person was discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt on or after April 18, 2016 in Municipal Court, that court must provide the person, upon request, with appropriate documentation to be transmitted to the Superior Court to request an expungement. See N.J.S.A. 2C: 52-6a(1). Upon receipt of the Application and accompanying Expungement Order, Criminal Division staff will assign an expungement reference number to the Order and calendar the matter within 14 days for signature of the ex parte order by the Superior Court judge designated to handle expungements.
2. Superior Court Proceedings dismissal
Where the proceedings were dismissed, the person was acquitted, or the person was discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt on or after April 18, 2016 in the Superior Court, that court must, upon application by the person, order the expungement of all records relating to the arrest or charge at the time of the dismissal, acquittal, or discharge. See N.J.S.A. 2C: 52-6a.
The provisions of N.J.S.A. 2C: 52-7 through N.J.S.A. 2C: 52-14 (i.e., verified petition, service, and denial) do not apply. The form Expungement Order (Form C) in the prose expungement packet should be utilized. This order should be made readily available in the Criminal Division to ensure that defense counsel or the person can submit it at the time of the dismissal, acquittal, or discharge without a conviction or finding of guilt. Once the judge who presided over the proceedings has signed the order, it should be assigned a
