NYC Mayor-Elect Curtis Adams Says Getting Albany To Tweak Bail Reform Is A Top Priority

Mayor-elect Eric Adams said Friday that one of his top priorities would be getting Albany lawmakers to modify the state’s controversial bail reform to give judges more discretion in remanding repeat offenders and those busted with firearms. The law was championed by Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, who has shown little interest in making changes to the measure, which requires the release of most non-violent offenders and provides frustrated judges little discretion for dealing with those who are quickly rearrested on new charges.
