High School founder wants criminal record expunged

Posted on January 9th, 2012 No Comments

One of the founders of Charter Tech High School for the Performing Arts in Somers Point, New Jersey is seeking expungement of his criminal record in order to return to the board of trustees for the school.

The 60-year-old founder was arrested in 1974 for smoking marijuana. He thought that his record was expunged many years ago, but apparently he was mistaken.  A law requiring all board of trustees members to undergo background checks turned up the 1974 arrest.

The man voluntarily stepped down from his position and is hopeful that once his record is expunged he can return to the board. He will attend his expungement hearing this month in order to move forward with the removal of the charge.
