CURRENT VERSION OF TEXT
An Act concerning the early release of certain 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 Section 8 of P.L.2009, c.330 (C.30:4-123.51d) is repealed.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.
This bill repeals section 8 of P.L.2009, c.330 (C.30:4-123.51d), which established an early release program for certain inmates sentenced to terms of incarceration in State correctional facilities.
Under the program, nonviolent inmates who are scheduled to “max-out” are released six months early. During that six-month period, these inmates are subject to parole supervision by the Division of Parole.
Recently, an inmate released early under this program committed a murder.
