Hochul releases 8,000 felons from parole obligations under new state law

ALBANY, NY-  CNHI News reports that far-left New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, who almost makes some New Yorkers long for the days of Andrew Cuomo, signed a bill which resulted in the release of 8,000 felons from their parole obligations last week.

The bill was authored by another unelected member of the executive branch, former state senator and now Lt. Gov. Brian Benjamin.

The so-called “Less is More Act” provides that parolees who go 30 days without violating their conditions of release while under parole supervision will receive an in-kind credit of 30 days off their sentence. This is another in a series of laws passed in Democrat-run states across the country that coddles criminals, even as crime rates skyrocket.
