An Act terminating an early release program for certain State inmates and repealing section 8 of P.L.2009, c.330.
Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:
1. Section 8 of P.L.2009, c.330 (C.30:4-123.51d) is repealed.
2. This act shall take effect immediately.
Section 8 of P.L.2009, c.330 (C.30:4-123.51d) established an early release program for certain inmates incarcerated in State correctional facilities.
The program was established to subject nonviolent inmates who were scheduled to be released into the community without transitional supervision as “max-outs” to a six month period of parole.
Two inmates who were granted early releases under this program have been charged with murder in recent weeks.
