As a result of 2 recent decisions by the Court of Appeals, Matter of Garner v NYS Dept. of Criminal Justice Services and People v Sparber, the Dept. of Criminal Justice Services and Division of Parole must resentence or release inmates whose terms of post-release supervision were not pronounced at sentencing by their trial judges. The NYS Attorney General has filed a memo of law in State of New York v Myers seeking a temporary restraining order arguing that if the inmates are immediately released from custody, the criminal justice system could lose track of the inmates which could pose a threat to public safety. You can read the AG’s affirmation here.
