Gov. to Pitch Changes to Bail Reform Law

Sharing is Caring!

In a turn of events, Gov. Kathy Hochul is now proposing a public safety package including making more crimes bail eligible in New York after weeks of being accused of ignoring the ongoing crime wave.

The plan, obtained by the New York Post, includes a measure that would give judges more discretion to order bail and detain criminal defendants for a series of additional crimes based on criminal history.

“For offenses that are not currently subject to arrest, police will have the ability (though not the requirement) to deny a Desk Appearance Ticket (DAT) and arrest an individual who has previously received a DAT within eighteen months. All second offenses within a certain period of time will be bail-eligible,” the memo reads.
