Expungement of Arrest Record

As a defendant, there are situations which you are entitled to have all records relating to an arrest or conviction expunged and destroyed.  The situations are as follows:

  • If your case is dismissed, nolle prossed or has a not guilty verdict, you may file for an expungement to have the charge removed from your arrest record after 10 days.
  • If you participate in the Pre-Trial Intervention Program and your case is dismissed upon completion, you may file for an expungement of your record thru Pre-Trial Intervention Program.
  • For a first offense conviction in the Municipal Court or Magistrate's, with no further convictions in a three year period, you may be eligible for an expungement of your record, based on the charge.  This will not apply to convictions involving the operation of a Motor Vehicle, DUI, DUS and Criminal Domestic Violence, and are not eligible for expungement.
