ICYMI – No crime spree exception for expungements – In re J.S.

[August 10, 4:24 p.m.]  In a decision released today, the New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled there is no crime spree exception for expungements.

In the majority opinion of the Court, written by Justice Patterson, it is held that “the plain language of N.J.S.A. 2C:52-2(a) precludes expungement of convictions when the petitioner has been convicted of multiple crimes, even when those crimes occurred within a short span of time. ”
