Rockland County, NY - State Agency: Jail Shouldn't Have Taken Out-of-State Inmates
Rockland County, NY - The New York state Commisson of Corrections has found that the Rockland County jail wrongly accepted six out-of-state inmates.
The oversight agency reiterated in a letter to Sheriff James Kralik that jail officials broke state corrections law and should never again accept inmates from out of state.
The issue rose during the recent campaign for sheriff when Democrat Tim O'Neill sharply criticized Sheriff Kralik because the jail had done so. During the campaign, O'Neill focused on jail officials who agreeed to let Ben Klein of Monsey serve a 1- to 2-year sentence in the Rockland jail for vehicular murder, rather than in Pennsylvania, where the death occurred.
The commission is sending a memo to all jails in the state to remind that accepting prisoners from other states is unacceptable. [journalnews]
