CALL FOR LEGISLATIVE ACTION TO END THE PREMATURE RELEASE OF VIOLENT CRIMINALS
A Message from Len Suzio:
of you have encouraged me to stay active in my public advocacy for
Connecticut families and taxpayers. One of the things I intend to do is
to keep you informed about important develops at the State Capitol.
you may recall, last year I fought to suspend and reform the "Early
Release" program that allows violent criminal out of jail early. I
intend to lead a public campaign to revoke this fatally flawed law that
already has cost 2 innocent residents their lives when they were
murdered by criminals let loose before serving their full time.
year we won the fight to cap and cut the hidden gas tax. We were
successful because so many of you signed petitions and contacted the
governor's office. It is now time to start a petition drive to end

Suzio Blasts Early Release Program
Will Lead Statewide Effort to Expose Dangerous Law
State Senator Len Suzio, Connecticut's leading critic of the Early
Release program, called for legislative action to end the premature
release of violent criminals from jail before completion of their
sentence. "We know of murders and rapes that have been committed by
hardened criminals released under the Early Release Program. The arrest
of Veron Lloyd in Hartford who has been charged with assault of a
pregnant woman is the latest example of how this flawed law endangers
the public by freeing unreformed and hardened criminals. If the
Legislature were truly concerned with public safety it would eliminate
this flawed and dangerous program", said Suzio.
rape, robberies, assaults and other violent crimes are being committed
by unreformed criminals let loose under the Early Release Law. The
Legislature should waste no time eliminating the loophole that releases
criminal thugs to terrorize our neighborhoods. I call upon the
Legislature to swiftly act on Senator Markley's proposed legislation to
eliminate the flawed Early Release Program. Every week that goes by more
and more crimes are being committed by graduates of this fatally flawed
program," Suzio continued.
Suzio is the newest member of the Victim Advocate Advisory Committee.
"I will use my position on the Victim Advocate Advisory Committee to
challenge those who continue to make excuses for this tragically failed
public policy," concluded Suzio.
