Three Weeks In: Still No Changes to New Criminal Justice Reform Laws

Opponents of the recently enacted bail reform laws in New York continue to hammer away at supporters for failing to even bring it up for discussion as the legislative session opened earlier this month. Stony Point supervisor Jim Monaghan says he’s been disappointed to not see any movement in fixing the new laws that went too far…

Rockland Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski says reforms do need to be made to make the system fairer for those who don’t have much money, but some of the changes went too far…

One of the latest cases that has opponents of the new bail reform rules angered involves a man in Harriman who was caught on a surveillance video punching a woman identified as his girlfriend, and hiding a knife up his sleeve but then tossing it on a roof. He was arrested and charged with menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and attempted assault and harassment, but was released on an appearance ticket.
