More Offenses – Shorter Wait – New Expungement Law Signed – Amendment to NJSA 2C:52-2

[1/13/10 – 10:20 am] Yesterday, the governor signed into law a series of amendments to NJSA 2C:52-2 which will reduce the time limitations necessary to file for an expungement for a crime. More significantly, the amended statute vastly broadens the number of people who can now apply for an expungement following a drug conviction of the third of fourth degree, a disposition that was not previously available under the prior law.
