Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol is hosting one of 10 simultaneous, statewide press conferences Thursday to address the recent Criminal Justice Reform Bills that will be taking effect on Jan. 1.

These simultaneous, state-wide press conferences are being held to inform and educate the public of the upcoming, significant changes and to urge them to call upon their state leaders to stop, change, or amend these laws so that the public is protected from the dangers that will occur as a result of them.

Press conferences are being assembled in conjunction with the New York State Sheriff’s Association, the New York State District Attorney’s Association, and the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police. These events will be held in Albany County, the Chemung County / Central Southern Tier Region, the Delaware County/ Eastern Southern Tier Region, the Erie and Niagara County Region, the Monroe County Region, Oneida County, Onondaga County, the Orange County / Dutches County Region, Rockland County, and the New York City / Long Island Regions all at the same time to insure swift and full coverage by the media all throughout the state. 

The Utica region press conference will be held at the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, located at 6075 Judd Road in Oriskany. In attendance at this press conference will be Sheriffs, District Attorneys, Chiefs of Police, and Union Officials from both Oneida County and several surrounding counties.

We spoke with Undersheriff Joseph Lisi this morning about just a few of the issues bail reform brings about for local law enforcement.
