Medible review new jersey governor signs expungement bills into law

TRENTON, NJ — New Jersey’s Republican Governor Chris Christie signed a package of bills (S. 3306, S. 3307, and S. 3308) expanding the crimes eligible for expungement.

Among other changes, the measures prevent employers from inquiring about a job candidate’s criminal record and permit those convicted of certain marijuana sales offenses to seek an expungement of their criminal record.

“We want to give those overcoming incarceration or the disease of addiction, young offenders, and all who have earned and deserve it, a second chance at life,” the Governor said in a press statement.
