Thankfully, depending on the circumstances, you may be eligible to have this incident expunged from your criminal record immediately upon dismissal of the charges. It is essential for your future that you take care of this as soon as possible. That’s why you need to speak with a knowledgeable NJ expungement attorney who can ensure that your expungement application is submitted, argued and resolved as efficiently as possible.

Expungement of an Arrest in New Jersey: N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6

If you have been arrested and the charges were dismissed or you were found not guilty at trial, that is a major success. However, your work is not done. The arrest will still show up on your record when a background check is run for school or employment opportunities. Yes, the charges will show up as dismissed and you will have no criminal record as a result of the incident, but you may still have to explain this arrest to your potential employer. To avoid this, you can file for an expungement to have the arrest removed from your record entirely. There is no waiting period, so you can file this expungement immediately. Once the expungement is completed, you will have no criminal record and no arrest record as a result of the incident.

An expungement of an arrest not resulting in a conviction is governed by N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6 which provides in pertinent part:

§ 2C:52-6. Arrests not resulting in conviction

a. In all cases, except as herein provided, wherein a person has been arrested or held to answer for a crime, disorderly persons offense, petty disorderly persons offense or municipal ordinance violation under the laws of this State or of any governmental entity thereof and against whom proceedings were dismissed, or who was acquitted, or who was discharged without a conviction or finding of guilt, may at any time following the disposition of proceedings, present a duly verified petition as provided in section 2C:52-7 to the Superior Court in the county in which the disposition occurred praying that records of such arrest and all records and information pertaining thereto be expunged.

b. Any person who has had charges dismissed against him pursuant to P.L.1970, c. 226, § 27 (C. 24:21-27) [FN1] or pursuant to a program of supervisory treatment, shall be barred from the relief provided in this section until 6 months after the entry of the order of dismissal.

c. Any person who has been arrested or held to answer for a crime shall be barred from the relief provided in this section where the dismissal, discharge, or acquittal resulted from a determination that the person was insane or lacked the mental capacity to commit the crime charged.
