1. Defendant has the right to present expert to prove their defense State v Granskie 433 NJ 46 (App. Div. 2013)
The Court held that defendant had the right to present expert testimony concerning his heroin addiction and withdrawal symptoms and the potential impact of his physical and psychological condition on the reliability of his confession. The expert may explain how heroin withdrawal could have affected the defendant during the police interrogation, but may not opine that the defendant's confession was unreliable or was false, because such testimony would usurp the jury's role. While the expert may rely in part on hearsay to explain his opinions, N.J.R.E. 703, there must be some legally competent evidence that defendant was in fact suffering from withdrawal at the time he made the confession. In evaluating a proffer of expert testimony, the court must apply the provisions of N.J.R.E. 702. [The rule sets forth three basic requirements for the admission of expert testimony: "'(1) the intended testimony must concern a subject matter that is beyond the ken of the average juror; (2) the field testified to must be at a state of the art that an expert's testimony could be sufficiently reliable; and (3) the witness must have sufficient expertise to offer the intended testimony.'" Those requirements are construed "liberally" in favor of admitting expert testimony.
