Morristown Criminal Record Expungements Attorney — 2010 Changes to New Jersey Expungement Laws

Modifications to New Jersey’s expungement laws favor individuals who have been convicted of certain crimes in New Jersey. The new laws extend eligibility to individuals who were previously barred from criminal record expungement. The laws also reduce the mandatory waiting period for expungement eligibility.

  • Drug conviction expungement: Under previous New Jersey expungement laws, individuals who were convicted of certain drug crimes, such as drug distribution or drug possession with the intent to distribute, were ineligible to expunge their criminal record — regardless of the amount of time that has elapsed. However, under new expungement laws, these individuals are now eligible for criminal record expungement.
  • Felony conviction expungement: The changes in New Jersey expungement laws also dramatically reduce the expungement eligibility waiting period for individuals convicted of a felony offense from 10 years (from the end of their sentence) to five years.
