RADICAL & WRONG

New York State’s radical new bail “reform” law eliminates bail for people charged with dozens of serious crimes, like criminally negligent homicide, stalking and strangulation, aggravated assault on a child under 11 and grand larceny in the first degree.

Instead of bail, Mayor de Blasio’s plan to get these defendants to appear for their court date is to offer them Mets tickets!

Making matters even worse, this radical new law is a backdoor Sanctuary State policy because, without bail, local law enforcement will be unable to legally hold illegal immigrants subject to an ICE detainer, even if they are not in a sanctuary county.

Sign the Petition to stop this new law from taking effect on January 1st.

OVERVIEW:

As of January 1, those who commit hate crimes of various degrees including coercion, menacing, stalking, assault, aggravated harassment and even aggravated assault of a child are freed with no bail. other serious crimes include strangulation, nearly every type of drug dealing and criminally negligent homicide.

• Under this law, even those with lengthy “rap sheets” will be allowed to walk free.
• Under this law, even dangerous criminals who pose a public safety risk can be released without bail.
• This law removes almost all of a judge’s discretion and many of those arrested will simply be handed a summons, released and won’t see a judge until weeks later, when and if they appear in court.
• Information concerning witnesses will no longer remain confidential until shortly before the trial. Now, the names of witnesses and their contact information will be released to the accused within 15 days of the arrest date, an action that will make the witnesses ripe for intimidation.
• In addition, we need to examine our court system closely to ensure that the accused are receiving their constitutionally-protected right to a speedy trial, which the bail law does not address.
