Beginning January 1, 2020, Bail and Discovery Reform will go into effect, and this will be bad for all of New York State and good for career criminals. Our community will be put at risk over and over as judicial authority has been taken away from our judges to set bail on those who are a potential flight risk.

I, Sheriff Robert L. Langley Jr., stand with the Sheriffs of New York State and the New York State Sheriff’s Association and urge everyone to contact your representative in the Assembly and Senate along with the Governor, and demand that Bail Reform and Discovery Reform be repealed.
