On October 19, 2015, my client’s juvenile expungement was granted. She was charged with 2C:35-10(A) (possession of marijuana) and 2C:36-2 (possession of paraphernalia) when she was a juvenile. She received a deferred disposition in Family Court.
However, even when a judge dismisses charges pursuant to a deferred disposition or another pre-trial deferment program (such as Conditional Discharge, Conditional Dismissal, or Pre-trial Intervention), a record of the charges may still exist. Therefore, it is critical to obtain an expungement.
