ESSEX COUNTY - EXPUNGEMENT

Case review and representation in expungement petition

CC has a master’s degree and recently had a lucrative offer of employment rescinded because of an arrest record.  CC was recently arrested for an alleged violation of a TRO (for mailing divorce papers to her wife). The charge was downgraded to family court but an arrest in criminal court seems to be blocking her employment opportunities. Prior charges are a DUI in New York in 2010, which did not affect her employment previously, and a 2005 marijuana possession charge in JAG court. Both of these would be disclosed in the petition for expungement but not expunged. The arrest record relating to the TRO should be eligible for expungement immediately.
