State OF New Jersey - In the Interest of X.B.

07-31-08 A-3053-06T4

X.B., a juvenile, was arrested for trespassing on public housing property, despite being notified that he was on a list prohibiting him from being on the housing complex property. Following his adjudication as a delinquent, he appealed, arguing his inclusion on the list was unconstitutional as applied to him.

We affirmed the trial court's finding of delinquency and found no constitutional infirmity as applied to him. We did, however, caution public entities who maintain such lists to consider adopting regulations regarding one's placement on and removal from the list and establishing a procedure whereby one can challenge placement on the list.
