Lawmakers want to seal identity theft victims’ records
In New Jersey the criminal record expungement process can be very expensive and very lengthy even for those who are victims of identity theft and did not commit any crimes. There is a push among several lawmakers to expedite the process for victims and allow their records to be immediately sealed for free if they can prove they are not guilty of the offenses on their records.
