Brooklyn judge uses forgotten law to dodge bail reform
from The Jewish Voice
It seems judges, too, are looking for a loophole to get around the bail reform, which would allow most criminals back on the street. Brooklyn Supreme Court Judge John Hecht took the law into his own hands, and used his knowledge of past statutes to get around the notorious new law. As reported by the
New York Post
, Justice Hecht used an overlooked 40-year-old state law to keep a repeat offender behind bars for up to 90 days.
