Attached is a corrected source note for the "Guidelines for Operation of Plea Agreements in the Municipal Courts of New Jersey" that appear as an Appendix to Part VII of the Rules Governing the Courts of the State of New Jersey. The corrected source note is intended to replace the current source note. It reinstates language that had been in the initial source note in 1990 but that was inadvertently dropped in the 1997 Part VII recodification. It also contains additional clarifying language. Further, the "Comment" that immediately follows the Guidelines and precedes the source note should be shown as "Supreme Court Comment" rather than just as "Comment".
