AN  ACT  to  amend the penal law, in relation to conditions of probation
  and of conditional discharge

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Paragraph  (h)  of  subdivision 2 of section 65.10 of the
penal law, as amended by chapter 508 of the laws of 2001, is amended  to
read as follows:
  (h) Perform services for a public or not-for-profit corporation, asso-
ciation,  institution  or  agency, including but not limited to services
for the [division] OFFICE of ALCOHOLISM AND  substance  abuse  services,
[services  in  an  appropriate community program for removal of graffiti
from public or private property, including any property damaged  in  the
underlying  offense,] or services for the maintenance and repair of real
or personal property maintained as a cemetery plot, grave, burial  place
or other place of interment of human remains. Provided however, that the
performance of any such services shall not result in the displacement of
employed  workers  or  in  the  impairment  of  existing  contracts  for
services, nor shall the performance of any such services be required  or
permitted  in any establishment involved in any labor strike or lockout.
The court may establish  provisions  for  the  early  termination  of  a
sentence   of   probation  or  conditional  discharge  pursuant  to  the
provisions of subdivision three of section 410.90 of the criminal proce-
dure law after such services have been completed. Such sentence may only
be imposed upon conviction of a misdemeanor, violation, or  class  D  or
class  E  felony,  or  a  youthful  offender  finding replacing any such
conviction, where the defendant has consented to the amount  and  condi-
tions of such service;

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
