Office Phone Number:
1. Error by Police Dispatcher Requires Suppression. State v Handy 412 NJ Super.
492 (App. Div. 2010)
This appeal required the Court to determine whether evidence found during the search
incident to defendant's arrest should have been suppressed because the dispatcher
who incorrectly informed the arresting officer that there was an outstanding arrest
warrant acted unreasonably under the circumstances, even though the conduct of the
arresting officer himself was reasonable.
The warrant at issue, which was ten years old at the time, had the same birth month,
but a different birth day and year. The first name on the warrant was a variant
spelling of defendant's first name. The court concluded that suppression is required
and, consequently, reversed the conviction based on NJ Constitution.
