NYS Gov. Andrew Cuomo

Fortune applauds Gov. Cuomo For Signing Bill

Monday, January 20, 2014

The New York State Legislature has passed a bill to amend the penal law and the criminal procedure law to allow state judges some leeway in probation sentences.

Presently, adult defendants can be given a minimum five-year probation for felony crimes and three years for misdemeanors. The new bill, S4664/A4582, would allow judges to sentence probation periods of three, four, or five years for some felonies and to give two- or three-year probation sentences for misdemeanor offenses, depending on the defendant’s circumstance. For some misdemeanors, probation terms can be as little as one year.
