Pledge to End Wealth-Based Detention

--

Pretrial Reform Now

 

Two out of every three New Yorkers in jail have not been convicted of a crime. That means everyday 16,000 New Yorkers languish in jails across our state - from Rikers Island to Erie County - because they are too poor to pay bail. Many are held in jail for months and even years awaiting trial because in spite of their constitutional right to a speedy trial. And New York’s discovery laws enable unfair plea deals by denying people accused of crimes the right to see basic evidence against them until the day of trial. Senseless pretrial jailing tears apart families, disrupts our workforce, undermines our justice system, and comes at enormous cost to taxpayers. It must end.

 

I pledge to fight to end wealth based detention and reduce jail populations with real speedy trial, discovery and bail reform
