BILL NUMBER: S773 TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the executive law, in relation to certain notifications to crime victims PURPOSE : This bill requires crime victims, upon request, to be notified of parole hearing of perpetrator of crimes. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Section 1: While current regulations allow a crime victim to submit a victim impact statement to the Parole Board, there is no provision to notify the crime victim when the parole hearing would be held. This bill corrects such a situation by requiring that a notice must be sent by first class mail to certain crime victims at their last known address not later than 60 days prior to the hearing. This bill defines "crime victims" as those who sustained personal injuries or loss of property directly as a result of the criminal conduct for which the inmate has been incarcerated; the widow, widower or closest surviving relative of a deceased victim; the spouse, parent, committee, conservator, or guardian of such victim, in the event the victim is physically or mentally ill; or the legal representative of such victim.
