A year after legislators denied Governor Malloy's proposed "bail reform" legislation, the Governor is at it again with House Bill No. 7044. On Feb 23, 2017, Malloy introduced new legislation aimed at "protecting" defendants by recklessly releasing violent offenders with ZERO accountability or supervision.
Is this what the Governor has in mind? Since when did the defendants become the victims? The Governor claims that defendants languish in jail simply because they cannot afford bail, however, the truth is that judges already have the discretion to release offenders on their own recognizance. No case is a better example of that than Daniel Cabrera.
