Default Inmates, even with life sentences, could go free under state proposals

Inmates, even with life sentences, could go free under state proposals

"Being debated in the state Legislature are two bills.

One alters parole standards to make inmates eligible for release if they simply show signs of rehabilitation.

The other bill would give 55 year olds a chance to come before the parole board if they have served 15 years in prison, regardless of their crime or sentence.

State Senator Patty Ritchie says this is an example of priorities gone wrong.
"They seem to be advocating for the criminals. There's no respect for our law enforcement, for our corrections officers who put their life on the line each and every day. This whole bail reform and these two bills, they're upside down," said Ritchie (R. - 48th District).

Ritchie says that with bail reform already releasing more suspects, the last thing the state needs is another bill that would release criminals already serving sentences."

There are always exceptions written into any legislation: sex offenders and violent offenders are normally left out of anything positive. The article doesn't give specifics, but I'll venture a guess that ifers with the possiblility of parole would be more likely to be included and not those serving Life w/o.

These measures, if passed, would effect only New York state inmates.
