AN ACT to amend the county law and the executive  law,  in  relation  to
  indigent defense services

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

  Section 1. Legislative findings and declaration. It is  a  fundamental
right  of  all persons in the United States to be represented by counsel
in all criminal prosecutions. In the case of GIDEON V.  WAINWRIGHT,  372
U.S.  335,  the  United States Supreme Court ruled that indigent persons
accused in state felony cases who were unable to afford  counsel  had  a
constitutional right to be defended by an appointed attorney paid by the
state.  Subsequently, the Supreme Court determined that indigent persons
accused of any criminal charge that could result in imprisonment, wheth-
er a felony or misdemeanor, are entitled to counsel at  the  expense  of
the state.
  New  York state has chosen to fulfill its obligation to provide repre-
sentation to indigent persons accused of a crime by requiring each coun-
ty outside New York city and New York city to implement and fund a  plan
to  provide such representation. In 2006 the Commission on the Future of
Indigent Legal Services concluded that a system of county  operated  and
funded  indigent  defense  services failed to satisfy the constitutional
obligation to protect the rights of indigent persons accused of a crime.
Such Commission recommended that funding  for  indigent  legal  services
come from the State's general fund rather than from the counties.
  New  York state has entered into an agreement to settle a class action
lawsuit that alleged deprivation of the right to counsel in  five  coun-
ties.  The  agreement  acknowledges  that  the  Office of Indigent Legal
Services and the Indigent Legal Services Board are authorized "to  moni-
tor  and  study indigent legal services in the state, to recommend meas-
ures to improve those services, to award grant  monies  to  counties  to
support  their  indigent  representation  capability,  and  to establish
criteria for the distribution  of  such  funds."  While  the  settlement

  Section 1. Section 218 of the general  business  law,  as  amended  by

reason of having been detained on or in the immediate  vicinity  of  the
premises  of  (a)  a  retail mercantile establishment for the purpose of
investigation or questioning as to criminal possession of an anti-secur-
ity item as defined in section 170.47 of the penal  law  or  as  to  the
ownership  of  any  merchandise, or (b) a motion picture theater for the
purposes of investigation or questioning as to the  unauthorized  opera-
