State v. Ivonne Saavedra (A-68-13; 073793)
The trial court properly denied defendant’s motion to dismiss her indictment. The State presented to the
grand jury a prima facie showing with respect to the elements of each offense charged in the indictment and the State did not withhold from the grand jury exculpatory information or a charge regarding a defense that it was compelled by law to present. Defendant’s indictment does not violate due process standards or New Jersey public policy by conflicting with this Court’s decision in Quinlan, which does not govern the application of the criminal laws at issue in this appeal.
