STACK SEEKS MANDATORY PRISON TERMS FOR ASSAILANTS OF SENIOR CITIZENS
(JERSEY CITY) - Expressing outrage over recent brutal
attacks against senior citizens in New York and New Jersey, Assemblyman
Brian P. Stack today announced that he will aggressively seek passage of
legislation that would require mandatory prison terms for depraved
individuals who assault elderly residents.
Stack (D-Hudson) said the beating of an 80-year-old Jersey City man by a
15-year-old mugger in the city's Greenville section prompted him to join
in sponsoring legislation Assemblyman Nelson T. Albano (D-Cumberland)
crafted to impose enhanced penalties for individuals convicted of
attacking senior citizens. The bill (A-3615) would make New Jersey the
sixth state in the country to impose such senior-oriented crime
"There should be zero-tolerance for thugs who prey upon senior
citizens," said Stack, who also serves as mayor of Union City. "If
there is a trend of more and more senior citizens being the victims of
brutal assaults, then there is a compelling need for tougher laws and
harsher penalties for the depraved individuals who commit such heinous
Under the Albano/Stack bill, mandatory prison terms would be imposed for
anyone guilty of engaging in an assault that causes bodily injury to an
individual age 60 or older. The minimum lengths of incarceration would
range from 18 months to 10 years, depending on the severity of injuries
suffered by an elderly assault victim.
Stack said the brutal attack of 80-year-old Evristo Conidi of Jersey
City was a "wake-up call" for get-tough measures to combat crimes
against elderly residents. Stack said the attack follows two other
highly publicized incidents in New York City by a man who assaulted and
robbed a 101-year-old woman an 85-year-old woman.
"Older people are easy targets and we should do more to protect them,"
said Stack. "We need to send the message in no uncertain terms that
cowardly attacks upon elderly and frail individuals will be dealt with
severely and with certainty."
Conidi, who was released from University Hospital in Newark on Wednesday
after treatment for bruises and swelling of the brain, was brutally
beaten during a robbery on March 22.
Police on Wednesday arrested a 15-year-old Jersey City youth and charged
him with two counts of aggravated assault and one count of first-degree
robbery. Police said the suspect also attacked another 16-year-old
"Good Samaritan" who sought to intervene on the elderly man's behalf.
Stack praised the speedy work of the police in bringing the alleged
Jersey City attacker to justice.
"The quick work by police sends a reassuring message to the entire
law-abiding community and all senior citizens," said Stack. "We just
need to make sure to give police more tools to fight beatings such as
this and address the surge of violent crimes by street gangs."
