1. Refusal Guilty Plea Vacated where Judge did not take Factual Basis from Non-English Fluent Driver. State v. Kesavan (App. Div.) decided May 26, 2009 05-2-3928 Unpublished

Defendant appeals from his de novo conviction for refusal to submit to a breathalyzer and leaving the scene of an accident. Defendant is not a native speaker and does not appear on the record to be particularly fluent in English. Defendant was not asked if his plea was being made voluntarily or whether he was being forced or coerced. No testimony was taken to establish defendant's knowing, intelligent and voluntary waiver of his right to a trial. Nothing in the record establishes an adequate factual basis. Accordingly, the appellate panel vacates the guilty pleas and remands the matter for trial.
