1 Reform of the Rockefeller Drug Laws and the Impact on Criminal Justice Hon. Judy Harris Kluger Chief of Policy and Planning New York State Unified Court System Michael Rempel Director of Research Center for Court Innovation NADCP Conference - July 2013 NADCP Conference - July

2 Session Overview New York State Drug Law Reform Research Questions and Answers NADCP Conference - July

3 Drug use surged in New York during the early 1970s State responded by developing programs to treat addicts In 1973, the Legislature enacted the Rockefeller Drug Laws Despite these efforts, lawmakers feared New York s drug epidemic was growing out of control NADCP Conference - July

4 Limited judicial discretion in sentencing Increased minimum sentences & imposed maximum life sentences for many low-level offenders Prosecutor controlled access to non-prison dispositions Mandatory state prison sentences for certain sale and possession charges NADCP Conference - July

5 Increase in prison population of non-violent drug- addicted offenders Without addressing the underlying issues of drug addiction, recidivism rates soared with increased arrests for second drug felony offenses that carried mandatory state prison sentences NADCP Conference - July

6 Development of Drug Courts Represents a change in thinking: By addressing the underlying addiction, courts can reduce the rate of recidivism by diverting offenders away from prison and into community-based drug treatment programs NADCP Conference - July

7 Drug Courts Time Line In the early 1990s, District Attorneys developed diversion programs statewide (DTAP) Midtown Community Court began to utilize treatment programs as an intervention Rochester City Court opened New York s first drug court, followed by Brooklyn Treatment Court in 1995 Prison diversion program (Willard) was developed 91 operational adult treatment courts NADCP Conference - July

8 Mechanism for Change In 2009, the Governor s Statewide Sentencing Reform Commission recognized that: Drug Court and diversion programs are an effective alternative to prison for non-violent, drug-addicted offenders The Commission recommended that: State prison sentences be reserved for high risk offenders Community-based drug treatment programs be an available option statewide Legislation be enacted that establishes a Statewide Drug Diversion Model NADCP Conference - July

9 Eliminated mandatory prison sentences for most first and second drug felony offenders Established a mechanism for previously convicted drug offenders to apply for resentencing NADCP Conference - July 2013 Established a statewide judicial diversion program for certain felony offenders (Criminal Procedure Law Article 216) 9

10 Judicial discretion Legal eligibility criteria NADCP Conference - July 2013 Clinical screening criteria Hearings on eligibility 10

11 Defendant can request an evaluation Finding of addiction required (DSM4) Plea required, absent showing of exceptional circumstances Statute allows for the sealing of prior misdemeanor conviction anywhere in the state Upon completion, outright dismissal or conditional sealing of record of conviction Judicial monitoring, case management, drug testing, sanctions and incentives (drug court) NADCP Conference - July

12 Addressing Relapse In determining what action to take for a violation of a release condition, the court shall consider. the extent to which persons who ultimately successfully complete a drug treatment regimen sometimes relapse by not abstaining from alcohol or substance abuse CPL (9) NADCP Conference - July

13 Statewide Implementation Judicial Diversion courts established in each of New York State s 62 counties. Training program developed for judges, court staff, and attorneys Established linkages to local treatment providers Research NADCP Conference - July

14 Statewide Participation (Felony Arrests) From 2005 through 2008, New York Drug Courts averaged ~ 2700 new participants entering Drug Treatment Courts with Felony Top Charges in a calendar year. Judicial Diversion for Drug Treatment began on October 7, NADCP Conference - July

15 Impact (October 2009 December 2012) Prison commitments for drug offenses decreased Cases diverted for drug court consideration increased Felony Drug Court participation increased NADCP Conference - July

16 Impact on Prison Commitments Statewide Trends: Statewide prison commitments declined by 38% from 2008 to 2012 (5,190 to 3,193) Felony drug arrests declined by 26% (40,361 to 29,960) Implication: About one-third of the statewide decline in prison commitments may plausibly be attributed to drug law reform. County Variations: New York City (NYC) saw virtually identical declines in felony drug arrests (32%) and prison commitments (30%) Excluding NYC, the 17 next largest counties saw only a 15% reduction in felony drug arrests, coupled with a 55% reduction in prison commitments (Albany, Broome, Chautauqua, Dutchess, Erie, Monroe, Nassau, Niagara, Oneida, Onondaga, Orange, Rensselaer, Rockland, Schenectady, Suffolk, Ulster, Westchester).

17 Testing the Cost Savings of Judicial Diversion NPC Research Mark S. Waller and Shannon M. Carey and Center for Court Innovation Erin Farley and Michael Rempel Available at: or

18 Research Questions 1. To what extent did court-ordered treatment participation actually increase in the year after judicial diversion was implemented as compared with the previous year? 2. To what extent did sentences differ between judicial diversion participants who enrolled after implementation and similar defendants who received conventional sentences in the previous year? 3. What are the costs and savings associated with judicial diversion as compared with conventional case processing and sentencing practices employed with similar defendants prior to implementation?

19 Research Questions 1. To what extent did court-ordered treatment participation actually increase in the year after judicial diversion was implemented as compared with the previous year? Samples: Enrolled in court-ordered treatment (85% drug court) AND judicial diversion-eligible charges felony drug or select property level felony charges: Pre: October 7, 2008-October 6, 2009 Post: October 7, 2009-October 6, 2010

24 Changing Treatment Population Region: 4% to 20% NYC suburban (other regions decline) Drug Use and Treatment History: More years of drug use (15.7 v. 14.6) More primary drug of cocaine or opiates (51% v. 45%) More previously in treatment (60% v. 52%) Criminal Justice Characteristics: More prior arrests (8.2 v. 6.8) and prior convictions (3.8 v. 2.9) More serious prior history: felony conviction (34% v. 25%), drug conviction (43% v. 36%), weapons conviction (9% v. 5%) More drug sales charges (v. possession or property) (45% v. 36%) Bottom-Line: Judicial diversion legislation makes treatment available to higher-risk/higher-need pool of defendants. NADCP Conference - July

25 Research Questions 1. To what extent did court-ordered treatment participation actually increase in the year after judicial diversion was implemented as compared with the previous year? 2. To what extent did sentences differ between judicial diversion participants who enrolled after implementation and similar defendants who received conventional sentences in the previous year? Samples for Sentencing Analysis: Treatment: Judicial diversion participants (first year) who would not have received treatment if not for legislation Comparison: Similar defendants, pre-implementation year

26 Impact on Sentencing Outcomes Judicial Diversion Comparison (N = 503) (N = 503) SENTENCE TYPE *** Prison 23% 20% Jail or Jail/Probation Split 13% 35% Other Sentence 31% 54% No Sentence/Case Dismissed 34% 0% DAYS OF INCARCERATION AND SUPERVISION Average Prison Days Average Jail Days 27.88*** Average Probation Days 12.85*** Average Parole Days Summary: Judicial Diversion Produced: Significantly less use of jail Significantly less use of probation Increased case dismissals (for those who graduate) Benefits for felony drug cases, not property cases + <p.10 * p <.05 ** p <.01 *** p <.001

27 Summary (Questions 1 and 2) Court-ordered treatment enrollment increased 77% Regional differences revealed the impact of Article 216 depended on local practices at regional and county levels Judicial diversion makes treatment available to higherrisk/higher-need population Judicial diversion cases spend significantly less time in jail or on probation than similar non-treatment cases in the pre-implementation period Judicial diversion produced better sentencing outcomes for drug than for property offenders

28 Research Questions 1. To what extent did court-ordered treatment participation actually increase in the year after judicial diversion was implemented as compared with the previous year? 2. To what extent did sentences differ between judicial diversion participants who enrolled after implementation and similar defendants who received conventional sentences in the previous year? 3. What are the costs and savings associated with judicial diversion as compared with conventional case processing and sentencing practices employed with similar defendants prior to implementation?

30 TICA Methods Cost to the Taxpayer Opportunity Resources

31 Cost-Benefit Questions 1. What are the investment costs associated with judicial diversion compared to conventional case processing? 2. What are the outcome costs after the instant case has ended of judicial diversion compared to conventional case processing? 3. What are the net savings produced by judicial diversion for taxpayers overall and for each individual public agency (difference in investment costs plus difference in outcome costs)?

42 Investment Costs Plus Outcome Savings Without Victimizations: Outcome Savings ($10,330) Minus Investment Costs ($5,186) = Net 5-Year Saving of $5,144 Per Participant With Victimizations: Outcome Savings ($18,383) Minus Investment Costs ($5,186) = Net 5-Year Saving of $13,197 per Participant

43 Net System Savings Without Victimizations: $7,155,304 Without per Victimizations: Year (Assumes $7,155,304 1,391 new per participants Year due to Judicial Diversion) (Assumes 1,391 new participants due to Judicial Diversion) With Victimizations: $18,357,027 With Victimizations: per Year (Assumes $18,357,027 1,391 new per participants Year due to Judicial Diversion) (Assumes 1,391 new participants due to Judicial Diversion)

44 Summary (Question 3) Judicial diversion produces resource savings especially for those facing felony drug charges (not property) The state prison agency sees the greatest savings, followed by county jails, district attorneys, and public defenders. (The court essentially breaks even.) How resource savings affect actual budgets is unknown. Whether net system savings are sustained depends on: Future case volume (20% reduction in judicial diversion volume in years 2 and 3 post-implementation). Mix of cases (continuing to enroll felony drug cases, especially high-risk/high-need, will maximize benefits)
