Why am I NOT Eligible For an Expungement?

Some offenses, when committed in New Jersey, are not eligible for future expungement. Additionally, too many convictions on a criminal record may deem an individual ineleligible for expungement.

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:52-2, the following crimes are “non-expungeable”:

Additionally, if you one is convicted of distribution of CDS or possession with intent to distribute, he or she will not be eligible for an expungement in New Jersey UNLESS the conviction was for sale or distribution of 25 grams or less of marijuana or 5 grams or less of hashish. For more information on expungeable drug distribution charges, visit this page.

Generally, an individual may have one indictable conviction and up to two disorderly persons offenses expunged from his or her criminal record in New Jersey.  The existence of too many convictions may be a bar to an expungement.
