NY Sex Offender's Risk Level Three Classification Affirmed

John Laraby, a New York state parolee, was denied a risk level reduction by a New York state trial court at a rehearing in accordance with a ruling in another case. Laraby believed that, based on his exemplary parole record, his risk level should be reduced from the current level of 3. The trial court disagreed and Laraby appealed.

On appeal, the New York Court for the 3rd Department of its Appellate Division found the record showed that the trial court granted a continuance specifically to gather more information on Laraby's parole conduct. On that basis the Court found that the trial court gave appropriate consideration to the same and dismissed Laraby's appeal. See: People v. Laraby, 32 A.D.3d 1130, 822 N.Y.S.2d 162 (N.Y.A.D. 3 Dept. 2006).
