Senator Schneiderman Shepherds Historic Anti-Fraud, Taxpayer Protection Measure Through Legislature

New York's legislature today passed Senator Eric T. Schneiderman's Fraud, Enforcement & Recovery Act ("FERA"), a historic bill to strengthen the state's powerful False Claims Act. The New York False Claims Act, passed in 2007 and modeled after the then-existing United States False Claims Act, is New York's most powerful tool to fight fraud against the government, especially fraud by corrupt government contractors.

Bob Moran

Mr. Moran served ably and unselfishly 40 years ago as a Marine in Vietnam. However, he is currently suffering from the effects of agent orange.   Agent Orange is the name given to a specific blend of herbicides used in Vietnam from 1961 to 1971 during the Vietnam conflict.

The U.S. military sprayed millions of gallons of Agent Orange and other herbicides to remove leaves from trees that provided cover for enemy forces.  Mr. Moran was exposed to these herbicides.  Because of this exposure, he has developed diabetes, peripheral neuropathy and heart disease.

After Rochester Man Is Cleared For Murder He Did Not Commit, Senator Schneiderman Renews Call For Wrongful Conviction Legislation

After Rochester Man Is Cleared For Murder He Did Not Commit, Senator Schneiderman Renews Call For Wrongful Conviction Legislation

NEW YORK – After 18 years in prison for a murder he did not commit, Frank Sterling was exonerated Wednesday. DNA evidence identified Mark Christie as the actual perpetrator of the 1988 murder of an elderly woman for which Sterling was convicted in 1992. According to the Innocence Project, Christie recently gave multiple detailed confessions that included facts that were not known to police or the public and have been backed up by prosecutors. Senator Eric Schneiderman, the Chair of the Codes Committee which oversees criminal justice policy, hailed the exoneration and renewed his push for wrongful conviction legislation that would preserve post-conviction DNA evidence and mandate electronic recording of entire interrogations. “Every time an innocent man is sent to prison, the real criminal is let off the hook. The exoneration of Frank Sterling is a wake up call to take action in order to prevent another wrongful conviction from happening again. Let’s not waste this opportunity to make New York’s criminal justice system more fair, reliable and just,” said Senator Eric Schneiderman. Last fall, Senator Schneiderman introduced the “Actual Innocence Act of 2009”  (S.5234). The bill creates a freestanding ground of “actual innocence” upon which a criminal court could grant a motion to vacate its prior conviction where a defendant is able to present “reliable and relevant” proof that “conclusively establishes” actual innocence of the crime of which he or she was convicted.
