Statement on Bail, Discovery, and Speedy Trial Reform in New York 

 

Rochester, NY--In response to the passage of pretrial reforms in the New York State budget, Shani Curry Michell, Democratic candidate for Monroe County District Attorney has issued the following statement:

"New York State took an important step last night by modernizing our bail, discovery, and speedy trial laws. This will help to ensure that the criminal justice system is fair and equitable for all, and that unconvicted people won’t be jailed unnecessarily based on the color of their skin or the money in their wallet. We know that mass jailing doesn’t make our communities safer and healthier, and we must look toward solutions that address the root causes of crime, not just the symptoms."
