Syracuse Probation Office

The David Renz case has reached the house floor.  Representative Dan Maffei urged his fellow lawmakers last night to end automatic spending cuts that would limit the Syracuse U.S. Probation Office from doing a better job deterring violent crimes.  Judge Thomas Hogan, director of the Administrative Office of the United States Courts, believes the local probation office’s ineffectiveness is inexcusable, Maffei said in his speech.
