Expungement Expansion Approved and Signed into Law

Also on Monday, S-4154 was approved by both houses. The Governor, in turn, signed the new law in Newark on Wednesday. The new law establishes a process for individuals who have not committed any crimes for 10 years and have only been convicted for certain minor offenses for a “clean slate” expungement. Additionally, the bill directs a task force to develop and the Administrative Office of the Courts to implement an automated clean slate expungement system.  The new also requires that low-level marijuana convictions be sealed, and requires the creation of an e-filing system, eliminating fees to petition for an expungement.
