In New Jersey, provision exists to expunge records of mental health commitments. The statutory reference is N.J.S. 30:4-80.8. Allan Marain 01:11, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Does expungement include internet public record databases
If a felony is expunged, what happens to all the content already stored on online search engines? To have all records, news stories, mugshots, sentencing information, etc..., already automatically included in an online search erased does not seem possible. So, even though expungement, by law, erases the felony from ALL public records, does the availability of online search defeat the purpose? I think there should be some information added about this because the general statement seems outdated. Another issue that caught my attention was that expungement is limited to security clearance position at the DOJ. This caveat forces an indidual to "confess" of their crime in order for security clearance. This viewpoint is very under-represented. This exception to the expungement law should include the specific reasons for a caveat of a U.S. and state laws.Aramsow1 (talk) 21:31, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
