New York Scales Back Bail Reform After Police Complaints
from The Crime Report
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state legislators scaled back a series of controversial changes to the state's cash bail system that had frustrated law enforcement since taking effect this year, reports the Chronicle-Express near Rochester. Cuomo and legislative leaders reached an agreement last week, allowing judges to keep many defendants in jail awaiting trial unless they can reassure the court of their appearance by putting up cash or signing a secured bond.
