In certain cases, a person arrested for or charged with certain types of criminal offenses may be eligible to seal or expunge the record under New Jersey law.
Being able to seal or expunge the record may hide the booking photo or mug shot, police reports, charging documents, final disposition form and other records from public view.
The rules are often different for adult or juvenile cases. Additionally, eligibility requirements vary widely from state to state.
