Coded Law File

Current Summary of Changes:

Law File Changes- October 2004

Note: Laws added to the file since the last posting in February, 2004 begin with relative address/law ordinal 7069. Be aware, however, that changes/corrections have been made to existing laws. A summary is shown below, but may not be complete. We recommend that, if possible, you completely overwrite the existing law file with the new one.

DNA- DCJS has added several new indicator values in the CODED_DNA table due to legislation changes that affect an offender’s eligibility to provide a sample for the DNA databank. Also, the description column was expanded to 400 characters.

HATE CRIMES - The HATE_CRIME column in the CODED_NYS_LAW table was changed from VARCHAR2(1) to NUMBER(1). This allows DCJS to distinguish those offenses which are not specified as Hate Crimes under PL 485.05, but are hate crimes by nature (PL 240.30 sub 3, PL 240.31 sub 1, PL 240.31 sub 2). A CODED_HATE_CRIME table was created to define the applicable values.
