On the NJ applicaiton for a permit there is a quesiton about juvenile offenses. My question here is if a minor juvenile offense "that was erased" is in fact erased from all agencies? ... does anyone know if it would still show up in a search for this application since it was erased but for something like this do they hold onto records? Want to be honest... don't want to falsify anything :)

the police still have a record of those. my advice would be to wait to fill that part out. and ask them when you get there.

This will depend upon the state you lived in when the juvie offense was committed. If the laws in that state require the offense to be expunged, there should be no record accessable by NJ at this time. If that did not happen due to adminitrative error and NJ was to learn of it, you can't be charged with perjury because you have the reasonable expectation for the reporting state to have done what is required of it. The key is whether or not the juvie charges were (1) only a crime if committed by a juvenile (e.g., possession of alcohol); (2) misdemeanor in nature (punishable by <1 yr incarceration, <$1,000 fine, or both), and (3) ...and this is one of the most comon issues...Whether the reporting state did their damn job when you either completed any probation or other sentence successfully and actually EXPUNGED the records.

I have seen guys refused jobs because of this nonsense and one even lose his job after having been hired. Likewise, as an FFL, I've had guys be denied clearance on the FBI background check because of it.

Hope this helps
