BILL NUMBER:S4928

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the criminal procedure law, in
relation to providing jurisdiction to Queens county for cases arising
from Rikers Island facilities

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends the criminal procedure law by adding a new
paragraph n, to subdivision 4 of section 20.40 that reads:

(n) An offense committed at Rikers Island facilities shall be
prosecuted by Queens county.

Section two makes the bill take effective immediately.

JUSTIFICATION: This bill will provide cost savings and management
efficiencies for New York City as all crimes will be handled in the
nearby Queens courts. This change will eliminate the need to drive
inmates to the Bronx for prosecution which is considerably farther
from Rikers.

Additionally, since the opening of the Francis Buono bridge, Rikers
island is only accessible by the public through Queens county.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
