On Monday, Dec. 9, at 6:30 p.m., the Queens Community Board 9 land use and public safety committees will hold a public forum on criminal justice and bail reforms that will be implemented in January.
Queens Senior Executive Assistant District Attorney James Quinn and Councilman Robert Holden will host the discussion.
Starting in January of 2020, judges across New York will have less discretion when a defendant first appears in court. There will be no more cash bail for most misdemeanor and felony arrests.
