I have a questions...

I have a questions on how to complete expungement paperwork in NJ. THe form asked for the town that I was arrested in. I was processed at the courthouse after my hearing when I plead guilty. Do I put the courthouse location or the town where the offense took place?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

NJ, offense was in 2016. I completed Pretrial Intervention requirements and it was dismissed on 8/6. I know there is a 6 month waiting period for expungement which has passed so I am trying to do this myself

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I have not filed any paperwork for expungement.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The offense was 3rd degree Theft by Unlawful taking, I was admitted into the PTI program which was completed successully and the charges were dismissed (if that's the right terminology) on 8/6/17. I am now eligible for expungement since the 6months has passed. I think that everything

Good morning,

They want to know where the offense happened -where you were either arrested and booked, or if you were actually formally booked, given a citation to appear for your court date (the citation in that instance would act as your "arrest").

the offense was in MIddletown, NJ but I was processed in Freehold, NJ. I should list MIddletown, NJ as the place of arrest?

I would list Middletown, NJ, yes.

Great, thank you.

My pleasure. Good look with the expungement. Given that you successfully completed PTI, it should be straightforward, and the prosecutor's office should have no reason to object.
