State v. Amed Ingram (A-56-16; 079079)

State v. Amed Ingram 
(A-56-16; 079079) 

Neither the statute’s plain language nor principles of due process require the State to present testimony from a live witness at every detention hearing. Instead, the State may proceed by proffer to try to satisfy its burden of proof and show that detention is warranted. Trial judges, however, retain discretion to require direct testimony when they are dissatisfied with the State’s proffer.
