No Destroying Evidence By New Jersey Police

Law enforcement in New Jersey will now have a tougher time destroying evidence it finds inconvenient or damaging to its cases under the pretext of following "official policy" or "administrative convenience" or some other nonsensical excuse, thanks to a New Jersey Supreme Court ruling issued today.

The impact should be to make it easier for defense counsel and defendants to access exculpatory evidence which could, in some cases, shed serious doubt on allegations of their crimes.  This ruling should help the wrongfully accused and entirely innocent, and prevent some people from being "railroaded."  In legalese, it should become easier to establish the "reasonable doubt" needed to argue for the acquittal of a criminal defendant.
