Glassboro Downgrading

Issue Detail:

June 17, 2013 Sean F. Dalton, Prosecutor County of Gloucester via e-mail only to sdalton@co.gloucester.nj.us RE: Glassboro Municipal Court Dear Prosecutor Dalton: Back on April 21, 2012, I complained about the West Deptford Municipal Court Prosecutor improperly pleading down statutory offenses to violations of a preempted and invalid ordinance. You responded on April 30, 2012 by promising to reach out to that municipality\'s prosecutor regarding this downgrading practice. My complaint and your response are on-line here and here. On-line here are three summons/complaints where the Glassboro Municipal Prosecutor similarly pled down statutory violations to violations of Glassboro Code § 354-24. That code section reads: Other riotous or immoral conduct A. Other riotous conduct, indecent conduct, breaches of the peace, vagrancy and prostitution not hereinbefore mentioned are hereby prohibited within the limits of said Borough. B. Violations and penalties. Any person violating any of the provisions of this section shall, upon conviction, be punished by one or more of the following: This code provision is clearly preempted and is probably also unconstitutional. Like you did with West Deptford, would you please reach out to the Glassboro Prosecutor? Thank you for your attention to this matter. Very truly yours, John Paff, Chairman New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Preempted Ordinance Repeal Project P.O. Box 5424 Somerset, NJ 08875-5424 Voice: 732-873-1251 cc. Michael Curwin, Esq., mcurwin@co.gloucester.nj.us John J. Armano, Jr., Esq. john.armano@trimbleandarmano.com
