Challenges to alcohol breath tests reach the U.S. Supreme Court

Police departments and citizens in New Jersey can expect clarification about the legality of alcohol breath tests from the U.S. Supreme Court. At issue is the practice in some states of charging people with a crime when they refuse to submit to deep-lung breath tests after an arrest for traffic violations even when authorities have not issued a search warrant.

New Jersey and statutory rape

Statutory rape does not require force. In the majority of cases, both participants have agreed to have relations with each other. However, if someone is not of the age of consent, they are not legally able to consent to having intercourse. As a result, someone who is an adult is considered to be guilty of statutory rape if they have intercourse with someone below the age of consent.
