1. Prosecutor must provide videotape and audiotape plus names of officers from other towns involved in stop.State v. Stein225 NJ 582 (2016).
Under Rule 7:7-7(b), the municipal prosecutor was required to provide defendant with the names of the police officers from the adjacent jurisdiction who responded to the accident scene. Because, when the prosecutor failed to provide the information, defendant did not raise this issue before the municipal court, or seek relief under the Rule, the issue has been waived. The prosecutor was also required to provide the videotapes that defendant requested, if they existed, since such information was clearly relevant to a DWI defense. Because the Court cannot determine from the record whether any videotapes exist, the matter is remanded to the Law Division for further proceedings on this issue.

5. Alcotest DWI Breath Test Coordinator N.J. State Police sergeant charged with records tampering in DWI cases for failure to conduct proper tests of breath machines.
A New Jersey State Police sergeant has been charged with records tampering for allegedly skipping a required step in the calibration of alcohol breath-testing devices, documents show.
The disclosurecould open upmore than 20,000 DWI cases to court challenges, according toa copy of a lettersent to court administrators and obtained by NJ Advance Media on Monday.
Sgt. Marc Dennis, a coordinator in the State Police Alcohol Drug Testing Unit, is accused of third degree tampering with public records and fourth degree falsifying or tampering with records, according to theletter, sent Monday by the state Division of Criminal Justice, which brought the charges.
Elie Honig, the divisions director, wrotethat Dennis was accused of deliberately omitting a step in re-calibrating three Alcotest devices - more commonly known as breathalyzers -which are used to test the intoxication level of accused drunken drivers.Dennis attorney, Robert Ebberup, said Monday his client denies the charges and plans to plead not guilty.
Lt. Brian Polite, a spokesman for the State Police, said Monday that Dennis behavior was noticed by his supervisor and immediately reported to the divisions internal affairs unit, the Office of Professional Standards.
Once it was determined that there was a possibility of criminal charges being filed, it was then referred to Division of Criminal Justice, he said.
Honig said the alleged omission does not undermine the scientific credibility of any State Police test results.
But Dennis calibratedAlcotest instruments in Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Somerset, and Union counties over the course of seven years, and state authorities have identified20,667 individual cases involving devices he handled, according to the letter.
The accusation could create a tangle of litigation similar toanother State Police caseinvolving a drug lab technician, Kamalkant Shah, who was accused of falsifying test results in a single marijuana case, bringing nearly 15,000 drug cases into question.
As in the drug lab case, the Attorney Generals Office has requested a judge be appointed as a special master to field the potential glut of appeals.
State authorities allege that Dennis falsely certified to performing temperature checks when recalibrating the Alcotest devices, which were used in two DWI cases before being taken out of service.
Honig said that step, while not scientifically necessary, is required under a procedure developed by the State Polices chief forensic scientist. That procedure was created to comply with a state Supreme Court decision regarding the admissibility of DWI test results in court, known asState v. Chun, the letter said.The breath test results were not relied upon in reaching the disposition of these two cases, Honig wrote. We have notified defense counsel in those cases of the circumstances described in this letter.
Dennis was suspended without pay on Monday, according to Polite. Ebberup, the sergeants attorney, said he could not yet comment on the specific charges but was preparing to mount a vigorous defense.
