That’s why it is imperative that you speak with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who can ensure that your expungement application is submitted, argued and, resolved as efficiently as possible.

An expungement of your Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) completion or conditional discharge completion is governed by N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6, which provides, in pertinent part:
§ 2C:52-6. Arrests not resulting in conviction

Expungement of Arrests: PTI or Conditional Discharge
If you were admitted into a diversionary program in New Jersey, such as Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) or a conditional discharge, and you successfully completed the program, the charges against you were dismissed. However, there is still a record of the original arrest, which will show up on a background check for school or employment opportunities. As a result, is important for you to have that arrest record expunged. You are eligible to apply for an expungement six (6) months after you successfully completed PTI or your conditional discharge.
