Expungement of PTI or Conditional Discharge in New Jersey: N.J.S.A. 2C:52-6
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.
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
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.
