Greetings Kenneth Vercammen, Esq.,

1. MVC should not Suspend Drivers License for Civil Out of State Pot Fine.Ritz v. Motor Vehicle Commission426 NJ Super. 608 (App. Div. 2012)

A violation of a South Carolina statute that imposes a civil fine of not more than $500 upon a person who is found in possession of drug paraphernalia does not constitute a conviction . . . for a drug offense in [another] state under N.J.S.A. 39:5-30.13, which mandates a six-month suspension of the offenders motor vehicle license, because a violation of such a civil regulatory statute is not a drug offense, which is defined as a violation of a law of another state that is substantially similar in nature to the Comprehensive Drug Reform Act of 1987.

2. Visible evidence seized Not on NCIC System is sometimes admissible.State v. Harris __ NJ ___ (A-111-10; 067929) 8-16-12

Items seized during a search conducted pursuant to a warrant issued under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act can serve as the basis for a subsequent criminal prosecution if their illegal nature is immediately apparent. A firearms serial number is visible simply by looking at the weapon. Recording that number does not constitute a seizure, and entry of that number into the NCIC system and review of the results does not constitute a search. Whether the officers could recognize immediately that the assault rifle and large capacity magazines were illegal to possess are factual determinations that must be remanded to the trial court.

3. Police cant search apartment after 911 call if no danger.State v. Edmonds211 NJ 117 (2012)

In responding to a 9-1-1 report of possible domestic violence, once the police officers found that there was inadequate evidence to corroborate the 9-1-1 report and determined that the parties safety was not an issue, there was no objectively reasonable basis to search the residence under either the community- caretaking or emergency-aid exceptions to the warrant requirement and the evidence obtained through the warrantless search must be suppressed.
