Check Fraud Plea Negotiations | Plea vs. Sentence
Are you worried about having a New Jersey check fraud criminal record? Number one, a plea and a sentence are two separate events. While they occur at the same time ordinarily, they are two separate events. When someone calls me up and says, “All I did was pay a fine” on whatever they’re talking to me about was their past record, that’s the sentence. The question is what was the plea to?
What did you actually plead guilty to, if anything, that put you in a position where the judge needed to extract money from you as a fine? The plea and the sentence are two separate events.
Check Fraud Plea Negotiations | Expungement
In most cases, a plea or a conviction can be expunged after a certain waiting period. There are a variety of waiting periods. Expungements are a whole separate area of the law. Number one, if the case is dismissed, your expungement can be filed immediately. As an experienced New Jersey Check Fraud Lawyer, I would suggest that you seek out the assistance of an attorney for any expungement. If you pled guilty to a municipal ordinance, which is a town violation, the waiting period is two years, and for any other expungement, you should seek counsel to find out the exact waiting period for any other offense that you have pled guilty to.
