When the New York State legislature passed criminal justice reforms earlier this year, Kings County Criminal Bar Association President Christopher Wright remarked that he never thought he would see the day when such sweeping reforms were enacted.

However, one major reform that advocates were seeking that got left out was parole reform. Now, the New York State Bar Association announced on Tuesday that it will establish a task force to study the state’s current system of parole.
