"You are mistaken, my dear Lucilius, if you think that luxury, neglect of good manners, and other vices of which each man accuses the age in which he lives, are especially characteristic of our own epoch; no, they are the vices of mankind and not of the times. No era in history has ever been free from blame"

- Seneca, Letters 97.1


"Our ancestors made the complaint, we make the complaint, and our descendents will complain plain about it too: morals are corrupt, vice is dominant, human affairs are declining, and all sense of right and wrong is crumbling. But the situation is still the same and it will remain pretty much the same, give or take a little movement one way or the other, like the waves which the incoming tide brings further inland and the outgoing tide holds back to the low-water line. At one point our moral failings will lean more in the direction of adultery than any other vice, and the restraints of sexual modesty will be shattered; at another point the dominant vice will be the mad excesses of feasting and gastronomic extravagance, which reduce inheritances to a shameful state of ruin; at some other time it will be excessive cultivation of the body and an obsession with beauty that advertises intellectual and moral ugliness; again, it will be badly managed freedom which breaks out into presumptuous impudence; then we will descend into public and private savagery and the madness of civil wars, in which everything sacred and holy is violated. Some day drunkenness will bring respect, and the capacity to drink a huge volume of strong wine will be a virtue. Vices do not wait around in just one location; they are on the move and jostle competitively with each other - sometimes winning, sometimes losing. But we will always be obliged to make the same declaration about ourselves: that we are bad now, have been bad in the past, and (though I add this point reluctantly) will be bad in the future. There will always be killers, tyrants, thieves, adulterers, rapists, violators of religion, and traitors"

- Seneca, On Benefits, I.10.1-4

An identification by the victim or a witness is admissible at trial, and the decision to admit it as evidence can be part of an appeal. Under NJ Court Rules, any decision by the Judge can be raised before the Appellate Court as an error by the Trial Judge. Part of the challenge of an out-of-Court identification is that the procedure used by the cops was ''unduly suggestive' leading to an improper ID. The process of conducting the ID, the make-up of the line-up, the similarity or dis-similarity between the people in the line up, and what was said by the cops to the witness before, during and after the process can all be a basis to challenge the decision to allow the ID into evidence during the trial.

The Supreme Court has ruled that evidence found in 'illegal' stops and searches can be used in court in some cases, a controversial decision that's raised concerns about redefining the Fourth Amendment.

If you are convicted of a crime in NJ, you have two options to attack the conviction. File an appeal; or, file for post-conviction relief. The first decision you have to make is whether you are attacking what the Judge decided (the Court erred); or, whether you are attacking what your lawyer did while defending you (the lawyer erred). You cannot file both at the same time. An appeal from the Superior Court must be filed within a 45-day deadline of the sentencing, and within 20-days if appealing from the Municipal Court. A post-conviction relief petition (PCR) must be filed within 5-years of the sentencing. Given the short time to pursue appellate relief, it is better to file the appeal, and if you are not successful to then file a PCR.

Half of the juveniles who are exonerated by DNA evidence where coerced into making #falseconfessions.  A 28 year old Denver man was exonerated by DNA evidence filed suit against the City of Denver seeking 13 million for the 13 years he spent in prison as a result of a coerced confession.
