NYSACDL Commends Governor Cuomo for Supporting the Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct
 
August 20, 2018
 
Albany, NY - The New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NYSACDL) commends Governor Andrew Cuomo for signing into law the bill establishing a statewide Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct. This commission addresses a key problem that leads to continued prosecution violations of ethics rules and criminal procedure laws - prosecutors’ lack of public accountability.
 
NYSACDL President Robert G. Wells said, "NYSACDL thanks Governor Cuomo for doing the right thing and taking the final step to make the Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct a reality. NYSACDL is proud to be one among numerous organizations and individuals who supported the Commission. We appreciate Governor Cuomo listening to our collective voice and look forward to further Criminal Justice reform in the years to come."
