TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to an ignition interlock device
Requires the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision to maintain the responsibility and costs of monitoring any person released on parole with the mandatory requirement of an ignition interlock.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 amends Subdivision 15-a of section 259-c of the Executive law, as amended by Section 38-b of subpart A of part C of chapter 62 of the laws of 2011, to require the Parole Office to maintain the responsibility and costs of monitoring any person released on parole with the mandatory requirement of installation of an ignition interlock device on their motor vehicle.
Section 2 provides for an immediate effective date.
Currently, the Office of Parole is charged with the supervision and re-entry of persons released from State Prison who are required to install an ignition interlock device pursuant to the provisions created by Leandra's Law. The county agency designated to monitor these same offenders must also supervise parolees after the completion of their State Prison sentence for a mandatory six month interlock condition.
The monitoring of parolees by county departments such as probation, district attorney, Sheriffs' offices and County STOP DWI is duplicative because the Office of Parole is already charged with this supervision. Having the Office of Parole as the sole entity responsible for the supervision of these cases allows for more effective monitoring of ignition interlock requirements in conjunction with the individual's other conditions of parole.
2012: Passed Senate (S.5221A / A.7669A) 2013: Passed Senate (S.758 / A2726)
This bill will eliminate an unnecessary expense for counties and also property tax payers.
