Officials say they’re eliminating cash bail for thousands of New Yorkers accused of misdemeanor and non-violent felonies in an effort to divert them from the Rikers Island jail complex. An $18 million plan to be unveiled Wednesday, July 8, will allow judges to instead require that people accused of certain crimes be monitored while they wait for their trial.

More than half of Long Islanders say they do not support the elimination of cash bail in New York, according to the latest poll from Siena College. The investigation continues into the fatal shootings of two Bristol, Connecticut police officers, Bob Stefanowski admits to being involved in a controversial project with Saudi Arabia, and more on the gubernatorial election in New York.
