Recent cases: Limited warrantless search for credentials ok here State v Hamlett 449 NJ Super. 159The court held that, with respect to a separate warrantless search of the center console of a rental vehicle defendant was driving, the police were authorized to conduct a limited search for credentials after defendant was unable to produce his driver's license or the vehicle's registration, insurance card, and rental agreement.
Defendant challenged the seizure of drugs and a handgun from his Galloway Township motel room pursuant to a search warrant based on probable cause issued by an Atlantic City Municipal Court judge. The court held that although the search warrant application failed to comport with the procedures promulgated for the cross-assignment of municipal court judges pursuant to State v. Broom-Smith, 201 N.J. 229 (2010), defendant's constitutional rights were not violated by the procedural deficiency and therefore suppression of the contraband found in defendant's motel room is not warranted.
Letter by defendant admitting culpability admitted. State v Marroccelli 448 NJ Super. 349In this appeal from her conviction for vehicular homicide, defendant argued that the trial judge erred in excluding a letter she alleged her husband wrote in which he accepted responsibility, six months after the fact, for driving the car at the time of the accident that caused the victim's death. The court concluded that defendant presented a prima facie showing of authenticity based upon her testimony at a Rule 104 hearing that she observed her husband as he wrote and signed the note. Therefore, the court held that the judge should have admitted the note into evidence and given the jury the opportunity to subject it and defendant's testimony to more intense review. The court also concluded that the trial judge erred in barring defendant from introducing evidence of her driving habits in support of her contention that she was not driving on the night of the accident.
