On February 16, 2021, my client was granted an expungement of her theft by deception case. She was originally indicted with three counts of theft by deception under N.J.S.A. 2C:20-4. Her case was eventually dismissed after completing a term of pretrial intervention.
My client wanted to file for an expungement because her indictment still appeared on her background check even though her case was dismissed.
It is important to note that even if you complete a term of pretrial intervention or other diversionary program, your case will still appear on your background check until you obtain an expungement.
If you are considering filing for an expungement, call the Law Office of Jason T. Komninos at 201.343.4622 to schedule a consultation.
