Assemblyman Colin J. Schmitt hosted Orange County District Attorney David Hoovler, Rockland County Sheriff Louis Falco and Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies in Albany on Wednesday at a rally opposing New York’s dangerous criminal justice changes, demanding a full repeal. This was the largest law enforcement based rally opposing the dangerous criminal justice changes held to date in New York State. The assemblyman has introduced legislation to repeal the dangerous criminal justice changes. "These changes were created without any input from law enforcement by the Governor and Democratic Majority and tragedies have occurred over and over again including in our Assembly District since the law was implemented," Schmitt said. "This is unacceptable. We should be making New York State a safer place and instead we are prioritizing the criminal over the victim. The time is now to fully repeal these dangerous changes."
