Hawley Calls for End to Bail Reform Once Again
March 1, 2023
Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C-Batavia) is once again calling for New York to bring about an end to its long-running and harmful bail reform policy, following a story that confirmstwo thieves stole a car within 30 minutes of being released from jail. Hawley, like many New Yorkers concerned for public safety, is tired of this failed bail system.
“The revolving door of crime that has been established by bail reform continues to hinder and harm law-abiding citizens while giving career criminals a free pass,” Hawley said. “It’s high time for the Majority in the Assembly to help bring an end to this era of crime New York is continually besieged by. To continue to ignore it makes them part of the problem.”
