Ocean County Man taken Off Megan’s Law

The Law Office of Tara Breslow was successful in winning another Motion for Removal from Megan’s Law this week. This means that for a prior offender, who has remained arrest free for the past 16 years, that he will no longer have to face the embarrassment and other related problems resulting from registering for Megan’s Law. There are a classification of sexual offenses which are eligible for removal from Megan’s Law. This is liberating for those who committed sexual offenses when they were young or possibly when they suffered from a substance abuse problem. Since the time of the incident, the person seeking the removal must have completely changed and no longer suffer from the issues that they once did when the offense was committed. Many people filing this motion are productive members of society who are good parents as well as having other positive life experiences.
An experienced New Jersey criminal defense attorney must file the motion after the person seeking removal is evaluated by a doctor and an evaluation is written. A very detailed brief should be written sighting reasons why the person should be removed from Megan’s Law. In addition, the lawyer is required to argue the Motion before a Superior Court Judge.
