State of New Jersey v. Anthony Alexander


In this appeal, the court reversed the denial of postconviction
relief because trial counsel's representation of both
defendant and another individual, who allegedly participated in
crimes with defendant, placed counsel in a per se conflict of
interest. The court held that because the conflict arose
between the entry of a guilty plea but before sentencing, there
was no cause to disturb the plea, but that defendant was
entitled to be resentenced following a determination of what
might have occurred had defendant sought to cooperate with law
enforcement regarding his alleged cohort.
