Rep. Jon Lundberg, R-Bristol, and Sullivan County District Attorney Barry Staubus say they are outraged over the Department of Correction’s new standards of supervision, which went into effect in August, WJHL reports. The pair says the changes have resulted in less direct supervision for the most serious criminals, including those convicted of murder, arson, burglary and child abuse. Lundberg, who is a member of the governor’s Task Force on Sentencing and Recidivism, said he plans to raise the issue with the group. “I think [this] would outrage everyone,” he said.
