SENATE PASSES BILL TO INCREASE PRISON SENTENCES FOR PERSISTENT VIOLENT OFFENDERS

“Three Strikes and You’re In”

 

The New York State Senate today passed legislation that would keep the most dangerous, violent, repeat criminals behind bars and out of our communities.

 

The bill (S.1539), sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Dean G. Skelos (R-C, Rockville Centre),  requires persistent violent felony offenders be sentenced to life imprisonment without parole.  This bill recognizes that persistent violent offenders are most likely to commit violent crimes again and would ensure that violent, recidivist criminals are permanently prevented from posing a danger to society.
