Voorhees, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/15/2014 -- Attorney Charles Block is pleased to announce consultation for expungements for Gloucester County residents. Those who desire to have records of their past criminal activities sealed may consult with Charles Block to see if an expungement may be possible.
Every arrest, even if it does not result in a conviction, is part of the public record. These arrests show up in background checks making it available to the public or employers – unless the record has been expunged. People who are starting new jobs or who want to manage their reputations online would benefit from having a clean record.
Each expungement case is unique. It’s important to keep in mind that not all crimes are eligible for expungement. Eligibility is determined by the laws that govern the state in which the crime was committed. Crimes of theft, trespass, vandalism, shoplifting, and other nonviolent crimes, may be expunged.
Most offenses which carry mandatory prison sentences cannot be expunged. Crimes that cannot be cleared include kidnapping, murder, manslaughter, perjury and rape, among others. Additionally, those who hold public office or are employed by public offices cannot have their criminal records sealed if they committed any crime that involved the office.
The expungement process is often complicated. It involves the court weighing in on the benefits of a clean record for the offender, or allowing the crime to remain on the public record. Charles Block, an attorney who handles expungements in Gloucester County, understands the legal system and the laws of expungement in New Jersey.
