1 Recent cases: Defendant Can Select Its Own Attorney.

1 Recent cases: Defendant Can Select Its Own Attorney. U.S. v. Gonzalez-Lopez 126 S.Ct. 2557 (2006)

A trial court's erroneous deprivation of a criminal defendant's choice of counsel entitles him to reversal of his conviction.
Source: 185 N.J.L.J. 53

2. If Drugs Acquired Jointly, No Distribution Crime. State v. Morrison 188 NJ 2 (2006) Because defendant and the decedent simultaneously and jointly acquired possession of the drugs for their own use, intending only to share it together, defendant cannot be charged with the crime of distribution.
Source: 185 N.J.L.J. 451
3. Pre Trial Intervention Rejection Appeal Must be Completed Before Guilty Plea. State v. Moraes Pena 386 NJ Super. 569 (Law Div. 2006) An appeal to the Law Division from the rejection of a defendant's application for pretrial intervention should be completed before the defendant enters a guilty plea. In this case in which the defendant pleaded guilty to assault by auto while intoxicated, there was no "patent and gross abuse of discretion" by the prosecutor in denying PTI based on a county-wide policy of discouraging drunk driving.

6. Needed: Outdoor Nativity Scene

A nativity scene, also called a crib or crèche (meaning "crib" or "manger" in French) generally refers to any depiction of the birth or birthplace of Jesus. The local Knight of Columbus members are looking for used outdoor nativity scenes no longer being used or displayed, to give them a new home.

Christian Nativity scenes three (sculpture or other three-dimensional crafts), usually show Jesus in a manger, Joseph and Mary in a barn (or cave) intended to accommodate farm animals. A donkey and an ox accompany them; besides the necessity of animals for a manager, this is an allusion to Isaiah: "the ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib; but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider" (Is. 1:3). The scene sometimes includes the Magi or Three Wise Men, shepherds, angels and the Star of Bethlehem. The traditional scenes that show the shepherds and Magi together are of course not true to the Bible story, since the Magi arrived much later (Luke 2:7-16).

9. Holly Jolly Christmas lyrics
Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow,
But have a cup of cheer.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
And when you walk down the street,
Say "Hello" to friends you know
And everyone you meet.

Oh, Ho, the mistletoe,
Hung where you can see,
Somebody waits for you,
Kiss her once for me.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
And in case you didn't hear,
Oh by golly, have a holly,
Jolly Christmas this year.
by Johnny Marks

wills and trustsA health care power of attorney is a legal document that appoints a person of your choice as your authorized agent; your living will can also serve as this document. You can modify or make a will as long as you are of sound mental health and over the age of 18 years old.

wills formsA will contest is a formal objection raised against the validity of a will, based on the contention that it does not reflect the actual intent of the testator. Your will is a testimony to those that you love and have left behind to ensure what you have is given to those that rightfully deserve an inheritance from you.
