"That created extreme fear and
panic on Hatcher's part that the FBI
would take him at any time," Ross
said. "The main reason he didn't
appear was . . . that neither the
Justice Department nor the FBI
would give any assurance that they
would comply with tribal extradition
law before taking Hatcher."

An $80 million emergency

General Assembly to improve and

being held up by an amendment
that would require 10 percent of

The bill was introduced in the
state Senate after lawyers for the

of the settlement, the General

Christie lawyers have requested an

"A jury represents the conscience
of the community," Korotkin said.
"In this very grave question, it is very
appropriate for the community to
have a say."
An advisory jury would not make
a final decision but would give advice
to the judge.
District Attorney Neil Rose of
Madison County, N.Y., the prose
cutor on Jacobs' case, said he finds
an advisory jury unnecessary.
"The issues in the extradition case
are very narrow," Rose said. The
only purpose (a jury) would serve
would be to inject into the case

belong there." -
Because of overcrowding, about
19,000 offenders were admitted
last year to state's corrections
system, and about 19,000 were
released, Guth said. "That means
there are a lot of people coming

struction of new prison facilities
with an increase in corrections
staff; the development of the
IMPACT program, a military
boot camp for offenders 18 to 22
years old; expansion of the elec
