Expungement information session offered in Plainfield Tuesday


Expungement can help give someone a fresh start.

Expungement of criminal records in New Jersey is NOT automatic. Though it is possible to have records expunged, it is up to the person involved to initiate the process -- at the correct time and place.

In cases of persons who have been charged with a crime and the charge is subsequently withdrawn, knowing the correct steps and timing can reduce hassles with potential employers in the future.

The cities of Plainfield and Elizabeth are cooperatingin offering two information sessions to equip those who may qualify for expungement to take advantage of the program.

The Plainfield session, which is free and open to the public, takes place Tuesday, June 20, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Plainfield Public Library. For more information, call Comunity Development at (908) 753-3377.

An identical session will be offered at the Elizabeth Public Library on Wednesday, June 21, also from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. (For information, call (908) 820-4052.

David Beverly, ombudsman for the Union County Vicinage, will conduct both sessions.

The Plainfield Public Library is at Park Avenue and West 8th Street and is an accessible facility. Parking is available in the 8th and 9th Street lots. For more information about library hours and programs, visit the library's website at www.plainfieldlibrary.info/.
