Chris Christie made it easier for people with criminal records, with incarceration, to obtain expungements.
Bill A206 goes into effect in 90 days from January 19, 2016. For some crimes the waiting period is 10 years before you can apply for an expungement. Christie has reduced the waiting time to 5, (five) years from the date of the last convication, incarceration, or completion of probation, whichever is later.
This is good news for people in this situation as it can be difficult to find employment with a criminal record.
