STATE OF NEW JERSEY IN THE INTEREST OF A.D., A MINOR A-3720-09T4; A-3721-09T4 05-09-11

05-09-11 STATE OF NEW JERSEY IN T A-3720-09T4; A-3721-09T4

We reverse the trial court's denial of the State's motion to transfer jurisdiction from the Family Part to the Law Division. Both defendants were just shy of eighteen when they were charged with Chart 1 offenses, including murder. Defendants' claims of duress and renunciation do not negate the existence of probable cause to believe they committed a delinquent act and are insufficient to defeat waiver.
