Big risks in discovery reform; N.Y.’s new law tips the balance way too far in favor of defendants

Big risks in discovery reform; N.Y.’s new law tips the balance way too far in favor of defendants

Big risks in discovery reform; N.Y.’s new law tips the balance way too far in favor of defendants

Police Commissioner James O’Neill has spoken up about serious problems in the bail-reform legislation that was passed as part of the state budget. The Legislature curtailed the ability of judges to assign bail regardless of the risk to public safety or the record of the accused.

01/03/2020

As a Law enforcement agency the LPD tries to keep the public informed on some of the changes in the law. As you can see the post with the cash bail reform was not a joke. We appreciate all comments, even some of them telling Law Enforcement how the LAW works. The LPD implores you to contact your local State legislator if you disagree with these changes in the law. With that the LPD will inform you on another law that will certainly not please. If a suspect is arrested and charged with burglarizing your home, It is his right, along with his attorney to return to your residence with a Police escort and view the crime scene to inspect and possibly photograph any evidence for his defense. That is just one example, this could also be applied to robbery, rape, Etc. Again please don't kill the messenger. Contact your local State legislator.

There is a great misconception that Police Officers put people in jail. This is not true. When a person is arrested the Police may place a bail, depending on certain circumstances, person(s) criminal history, nature of the crime or crimes, Etc. If that person is held on said charge, an arraignment typically takes place within 24 hours at which time a Judge will either set a bail or release the person. That being said as of January 1, 2020 New York State is eliminating cash bail for a list of crimes. What this means. If someone is arrested, lets say for breaking into a garage to commit a theft and is arrested. That person can no longer be held regardless of their criminal history and will be released after booking procedures are complete. The same is true for all the crimes listed below. Assault in the third degree
Aggravated vehicular assault
Aggravated assault upon a person less than eleven years old
