New Jersey’s Judiciary Adds Online Access to Criminal Conviction Data
From the New Jersey Judiciary:
A searchable database of criminal convictions resulting from indictments and adjudicated in Superior Court is now available at njcourts.com.
The Criminal Conviction Public Access system provides convenient access to statewide criminal docket information for all cases filed after 1994. Users can search by name or docket number and learn the charge for which the defendant was convicted. Hometowns and birth years of defendants, as well as their State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) numbers, helps reduce misidentifications. Expunged cases and cases that have not been adjudicated are not available through the system.
Visitors to the Judiciary website also can access the civil automated case management system, which enables users to search the status of civil cases, search the attorney registration index, which allows users to ascertain whether an attorney is eligible to practice law in New Jersey; and search the judgment lien index, which allows users to determine if liens are filed against individuals.
