ok, thank you

Hi Brian,

Simple assault is a disorderly persons offense unless committed in a fight or scuffle entered into by mutual consent, in which case it is a petty disorderly persons offense.

New Jersey has disorderly and petty disorderly persons offenses (what other states would call "misdemeanors") that can be expunged under certain circumstances. This is done through a "petition for expungement" if you meet the following requirements:

  • It has been at least five years from the date of your conviction, or the date on which the sentence was completed, whichever is later;
  • You have not been convicted of any prior or subsequent crime in any state; and
  • You have not had more than three disorderly or petty disorderly persons offenses.

So, if you meet the above requirements, the answer to your question is "yes."

 

I hope you find this information useful.
