NJ man’s crime exposed on fliers despite expungement

Posted on September 23rd, 2010 No Comments

A New Jersey man has gone to court to sue for defamation after Hudson County campaign fliers appeared saying that he had been convicted of a drug crime despite having the charge expunged.  The man, identified as G.D. in court documents, was convicted of drug possession in 1993 and later had the charge expunged in 2006.

G.D. was a former aid to Senate candidate Brian Stack in 2007 when the fliers were released by former state Senator Bernard Kenny. ┬áThe fliers were entitled “It’s the company you keep” and had G.D.’s criminal record, photo, and identification on them.

The New Jersey Supreme Court now has to decide whether or not it is libel to address a person’s expunged crime.

If your or someone you know is looking to have their record expunged, contact the Dallas expungement lawyer Mark T. Lassiter at 214-651-1121 to learn more about your rights.
