Since changes to criminal justice laws took effect in New York January 1, there have been heated discussions, especially about the elimination of cash bail for most nonviolent offenses. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne spoke with Pace University Law School Professor David Dorfman, a criminal law expert.

Earlier in June, a member of the Board of Trustees at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie resigned amid controversy over her role as prosecutor in the 1989 Central Park jogger case.
