Assembly Democratic Legislation to Reform NJ’s Expungement Laws Continues Advancing

Assembly Democratic Legislation to Reform NJ’s Expungement Laws Continues Advancing
(TRENTON) – Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Jerry Green, Grace L. Spencer, Reed Gusciora, Gordon Johnson, John F. McKeon, Thomas Giblin, Benjie Wimberly, Charles Mainor and Annette Quijano to reform New Jersey’s expungement laws was approved earlier this week by a Senate panel.
The bill (A-206-471-1663-2879-3060-3108) would reduce the statutory waiting period for an expungement of a criminal conviction from 10 years to five years from the date of the person’s last conviction, payment of fine, satisfactory completion of probation or parole, or release from incarceration, whichever is later. In the case of a disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offense, the waiting period would be reduced from five years to three years. Individuals with a criminal conviction or a conviction for a disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offense would have to apply for an expungement to the Superior Court in the county where the conviction was adjudged.
“Expungement offers an incentive against recidivism. It gives people who currently have little chance of finding legal employment the opportunity to leave past mistakes behind them, find a job and be productive,” said Green (D-Middlesex/Somerset/Union). “The fact of the matter is, the system is working against those individuals who have served their time and want to change and do better.”

I want to thank everyone who supported my nomination for another two years as Chairman of the Union County Democratic Committee. I want to also express gratitude to my Vice Chair, Colleen Mahr, for her leadership and commitment to our party.
These past two years have brought tremendous successes for Democrats in Union County. It has been my honor to lead Democrats to victory, especially this past week during the 2015 primary race.
In Union County, Democrats are winners. We share strong values and deep-seated beliefs in the objectives we want to achieve for the people we represent. We are a county that is more unified than ever thanks to our elected officers and our base of supporters and volunteers. 
Once again, thank you for your continued confidence in me to lead the Union County Democratic Party. Congratulations and good wishes to all Democrats, from Elizabeth to Plainfield and across Union County, who have been recently elected to represent the good people of New Jersey.
Chairman, Union County Democratic Committee
