Professor Larry Cunningham, the Associate Academic Dean, testified before the Committee on Courts and Legal Services of the New York City Council about the right to speedy trial in New York City Criminal Court. His testimony follows a letter-to-the-editor he wrote on the subject to the New York Law Journal, where he argued that systemic reform is needed to the Criminal Procedure Law in order to reduce delays in Criminal Court, which primarily hears misdemeanors. Professor Cunningham testified at the invitation of the Honorable Rory Lancman, the chair of the committee. At St. John’s, Cunningham teaches Criminal Procedure and other courses.
