With no action taken on revamping the parole system during the just-completed session of the state legislature, the New York State Bar Association is about to announce that it’s launching a task force that it hopes will spur reform.
The New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision reported that 29% of those who went to prison in 2016 were locked up because of technical violations such as missing a meeting with a parole officer, drinking, being in the company of a felon or being late for a curfew. The state incarcerates the second-most defendants in the nation for such technical violations of parole, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.
