1. Miranda Waived Unless Defendant Clearly Requests Attorney. State v Alston

204 NJ 614 (2011).

Defendant's statements after he waived his right to counsel, when clarified, were not an assertion of his right to counsel, and the police officer's questions did not exceed the scope of permissible clarification.

2. Free Power of Attorney or Advance Directive for Law Enforcement.

To recognize National Police Week, we will provide a free Power of Attorney or Advance Director for Middlesex County Police Officers. Appointments need to be scheduled by May 31. Call 732-572-0500. We have previously served as a volunteer with Wills for Heroes, which are programs provide essential legal documents to our nation's first responders, including Wills, Living Wills, and Powers of Attorney. By helping first responders plan now, they ensure their family's legal affairs are in order before a tragedy hits. The 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit Wills for Heroes Foundation supports these Wills programs, giving back to the community and "protecting those who protect us."

3. Consequences of a Criminal Guilty Plea

1. You will have to appear in open court and tell the judge what you did that makes you guilty of the particular offense(s) in front of a crowded room of people and sometimes newspaper reporters

2. Do you understand that if you plead guilty: a. You will have a criminal record b. You may go to Jail or Prison. c. You will have to pay Fines and Court Costs.

3. If you are on Probation, you will have to submit to random drug and urine testing. If you violate Probation, you often go to jail.

4. In indictable matters, you will be required to provide a DNA sample, which could be used by law enforcement for the investigation of criminal activity, and pay for the cost of testing.

5. You must pay restitution if the court finds there is a victim who has suffered a loss and if the court finds that you are able or will be able in the future to pay restitution.

6. If you are a public office holder or employee, you can be required to forfeit your office or job by virtue of your plea of guilty.

7. If you are not a United States citizen or national, you may be deported by virtue of your plea of guilty.
