2. Law Division Judges Say that Entire Judge King Alcotest Report was not Adopted by Supreme Court. State v. Coppola ___NJ Super.___ Law Div. — Camden Cty. 1434513 On Sept. 6, 2006, Giovanni Coppola appeared before Hon. Robert Zane, J.M.C., in Merchantville, and entered a guilty plea to violating N.J.S.A. 39:450. The guilty plea was entered with the caveat of a Chun stay. Following the Supreme Court's holding in Chun, the defendant sought to withdraw his guilty plea on the grounds that Chun adopted Special Master King's report, which stated that higher scrutiny must be given to cases where the Alcotest results are at the threshold levels (.04, .08, or .10). The court found that the special master's report was only adopted as modified within the Chun opinion and that the Chun opinion found that the Alcotest was reliable. The Trial Judge held that the Chun holding did not adopt King's report in toto and, as such, a per se violation remains a per se violation. The purpose of the per se violation is to prevent pretextual defenses where the defendant has been found to be at or above the threshold bloodalcohol limit. The court held that the Chun decision did not open the door for pretextual defenses and no additional scrutiny must be given to threshold level cases.
