(4 pp.) Where trial judge’s jury instruction was not plain error when he failed to explain that, in order to convict the defendant of robbery, it had to find that he acted knowingly, since the judge properly instructed the jury on a higher level of culpability, acting “purposely.” 14-2-3920 State v. Vonnie R. Smith Jr., App. Div. (10 pp.) Where defendant was convicted of receiving stolen property, trial court properly denied a post-trial motion for a new trial because of newly discovered evidence, since the new evidence did not meet the criteria in State v.
