State v Coven

2-11-09 State v. Lawrence S. Coven

Misapplication of entrusted property, N.J.S.A. 2C:21-15, is
not a continuing course of conduct offense. The offense is
complete the moment the recipient clearly and objectively
misapplies the entrusted property, thus putting it at
substantial risk of loss or detriment of the owner or person for
whose benefit it was entrusted. The indictment, which was
returned more than five years after that date, was properly
dismissed for failure to comply with the statute of limitations.
