Q. How do I get a copy of a misdemeanor conviction that happened in New Jersey in 1974?
A. If you want to obtain records about yourself, you may submit a request to the New Jersey State Police or to the FBI. You might also be able to obtain a "court disposition" from the court that presided over the case. A list of New Jersey trial courts are available here. Certain criminal information is accessible to the public via a New Jersey Judiciary database, but it does not include information before 1994.
