State Victim Advocate seeks to halt program that lets offenders get out of prison early

State Victim Advocate Michelle Cruz announced Tuesday she is appealing once again to the Governor’s Office and the Commissioner of the Department of Correction to immediately suspend the risk reduction earned credit program.
"The Office of the Victim Advocate has learned that the defendant arrested for the tragic murder of Luthfur Tarafdar in East Hartford had a lengthy criminal history of violence, unsuccessful probation terms and has been identified by the Department of Correction as an inmate that was released early as a result of the risk reduction earned credit program," stated Cruz, in an announcement.
