State of New Jersey v. Maribel Rolon, et al.

06-20-08 A-1049-06T4

In this appeal, we reverse defendant's conviction for first-degree robbery and remand for a new trial. Although the jury determined defendant was armed with a deadly weapon——a knife——the court committed reversible error when it instructed:
"defendant's intent with respect to the [knife] is irrelevant."
