Join the off-road runners for a great and unusual training run.  Run in the woods and marsh of Edison. Hashing is not a race but a non-competitive group run which follows an off-road course laid out with baking flour. If you like trail running without the competition of a formal race, this will be a fun switch for you. This is a complex course through woods, grass, swamp and marsh.  Wear old running shoes.

       $20.00 TO RUN.   $25.00 DAY OF EVENT. 
Please bring a can food donation for the St. James Food Bank. A fun time is guaranteed! You must be over 21 years old to participate. No times are recorded.  A sense a humor is a must.

4. For unlicensed driver, can't get both fine and jail. State v. Carreon 437 NJ Super. 81 (App. Div. 2014)

 
       This appeal required the court to consider whether a never-licensed driver may be fined and sentenced to a custodial term under the penalty provisions of N.J.S.A. 39:3-10. Because the court agreed that the statute allows a fine or imprisonment but not both, even for drivers, who, like defendant, have never been licensed, the court-reversed defendant's sentence and remand to the Law Division for re-sentencing.

2. Recent case Supervising chemist can testify in rape case if they independently verified correctness of DNA results State v. Roach 219 NJ 58 (2014)

     Defendant's confrontation rights were not violated by the testimony of the analyst who matched his DNA profile to the profile left at the scene by the perpetrator. Defendant had the opportunity to confront the analyst who personally reviewed and verified the correctness of the two DNA profiles that resulted in a highly significant statistical match inculpating him as the perpetrator. In the context of testing for the purpose of establishing DNA profiles.

3. Defendant has burden to timely object to testimony by pathologist who did not perform the victim's autopsy State v. Williams 219 NJ 89 (2014)

       Defendant's failure to object to the admission of the testimony on confrontation grounds and his decision to cross-examine the medical examiner constitute a waiver of his right of confrontation.

Dear Ken,


1.   Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas
2. Court cannot consider Suppression Motion testimony at trial unless agreed by defendant State v. Gibson
3.   Happy Holidays & Season's Greetings Worldwide
4.   Next events

1. Ken Vercammen, family & dog wish you Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas

 
         In the true spirit of the holiday and Christmas season, may we all be thankful and share in the hope for peace on earth and goodwill toward all.
         
          One of the pleasures of this holiday season is to thank many people for their friendship, goodwill and the pleasant association I have enjoyed with the hundreds of friends and professional people I have dealt with over the past several years. We sincerely appreciate our relationships and are thankful for the confidence many people have shown in us. I again want to take that make our business grow. Client recommendation is a very important source of new clients to us.


2. Court cannot consider Suppression Motion testimony at trial unless agreed by defendant State v. Gibson 219 NJ 227 (2014)
       
          Due to the fundamental differences between a pre-trial motion to suppress and a trial on the merits, the best practice is to conduct two separate proceedings. However, the motion record may be incorporated into the trial record if both parties consent and counsel are given wide latitude in cross-examination. Where the evidence from a pre-trial hearing is improperly admitted at the trial on the merits, the correct remedy is remand for a new trial.
