How else does #LessIsMoreNY help people on parole who are charged with new crimes?

Answer

#LessIsMoreNY does not alter current penalties for new crimes, but all individuals on parole will have the right to de novo review by a judge of the sustained violation and its punishment. This is similar to an appeal, which was not an option under the old law, and means the judge conducting the review can do so without consideration of the findings of the parole revocation hearings or the criminal court hearings on the case.
