As we have reported, new criminal justice reforms will go into effect in January 2020 in New York, now a socialist state. So-called “non-violent” criminal suspects will not be jailed before their trial dates in most cases and will not have to post bail.
More than 100,000 accused criminals will be released from prison each year and given free housing and job training.
In addition, the communist mayor is closing Rikers, a 10,000-bed prison, over the next several years. Three prisons in nice towns with a total of about 3,000 beds will replace Rikers.
About 900 prisoners are to be released after the New Year by Fredo’s brother, Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo also pardons criminal illegal aliens who haven’t committed a crime “for a while.”
CRIMINALS CAN INSPECT THEIR CRIME SCENES
The law will also force the prosecution to hand over to defendants a list of named witnesses within 15 days of the defendants’ arraignment. Critics say this will “make it impossible for prosecutors to ensure that witnesses are protected” throughout the trial process.
In addition to having the names of all the witnesses, criminals will also be allowed to inspect their own crime scenes. Imagine a home burglar allowed to visit the home he robbed.
Therefore, criminals will roam free and they can go back to your home or business where they committed their crimes.
You should also know that New York is overrun by cartels.
Some Will Try to Fight It But People Will Die
CBS6’s Emily DeFeciani talked with Lt. Steven Stockdale with the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and he says they are not happy about it.
He says they will have a tough time explaining to victims why they might have to permit violent offenders back into their homes.
“It really boggles the mind that this is a reality for us now. Talk about re-victimization,” Stockdale said.
“So that the defendant and his representatives can return to it, take photographs, take measurements, and stuff along those lines,” Stockdale said. That would be after they file a motion to do so.
The victim who refuses could be arrested for criminal contempt.
Cuomo made this a budget item instead of a vote. He rules like a king because New York is socialist/communist now.
“I’ll be really succinct: it was sneaky. It was sneaky, it was underhanded,” Stockdale said. “What’s wrong with a debate? What’s wrong with putting it on the floor of the legislature and letting people talk about it, the people that we elect to create these laws? Why can’t we let them discuss it? You make it a budget item? That tells me everything I need to know about the sincerity behind it. It was to be sneaky and to jam it down everybody’s throats.”
