This incident is another embarrassment for new prosecutor Alvin Bragg, as he spent most of his first month in office pursuing a soft crime policy. Bragg has been criticized for a new policy downgrading capital crimes such as burglary, armed robbery and drug trafficking. A first degree robbery in New York State carries a sentence of five to 25 years in state prison, while petty theft carries a maximum sentence of just one year and a fine of $ 1,000.

A former Manhattan attorney called Bragg’s policies “an insult to any law-abiding citizen”. Violent criminals now have a license to relapse knowing that they will never sniff the inside of a prison cell again, “said former prosecutor Daniel Ollen.
