BILL NUMBER:S3272 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law and the correction law, in relation to the delivery of sentence and commitment documents SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill would make a technical correction to Criminal Procedure Law § 380.60 to reflect the correct title of the commitment document that accompanies an offender to a correctional institution. Sections 2 and 4 of the bill would add a new Criminal Procedure Law . 380.65 and amend Correction Law §601(a) to clarify that the sentence and commitment or certificate of conviction, as well as any order of protection, must accompany an offender to a state or local correctional institution or to an OCFS facility when he or she commences service of a sentence of imprisonment. Section 3 of the bill would make a technical amendment to Criminal Procedure Law § 380.70 to clarify that it is only the sentencing minutes, and not the certificate of conviction or order of protection, that must be delivered to the institution where the defendant is confined within 30 days after the imposition of sentence.
