TRENTON – The Senate today passed legislation Senators Paul Sarlo and Loretta Weinberg sponsored to mandate that violent criminals have their chances for parole extended to only once every ten years to protect the families of their victims from having the wounds of tragedy ripped open time and again.
“Crime victims and their families should be given every right to be able to live free of fear and not have to relive tragedies over and over,” said Sarlo. “Violent criminals deserve the sentences they were handed, and shouldn’t be put on a short-term plan for release.”
TRENTON – Legislation Senators Paul Sarlo and Loretta Weinberg sponsored to mandate that violent criminals have their chances for parole extended to only once every ten years to protect the families of their victims from having the wounds of tragedy ripped open time and again has been released by a Senate panel.
The bill (S-2308) responds to a new law that took effect this past June which requires that inmates go for a parole hearing no later than three years after their last denial for release, regardless of the severity of their crime. The bill would apply to offenders sentenced under the state’s No Early Release Act and convicted for either a first or second degree crime, including murder, rape or arson.
METUCHEN – Senator Barbara Buono and New Jersey State AARP President Sy Larsen today sent a letter to Governor Jon Corzine, urging him to act during the lame duck legislative session on a bill requiring hospitals to put increased infection-control practices in place to help prevent the spread of Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus or (MRSA), a drug-resistant strain of bacteria.
The letter comes in response to a Journal of American Medicine (JAMA) report released yesterday, which outlined the danger of MRSA and other drug-resistant staph infections.
