NEW YORK (77WABC) — Ten career criminals have 500 arrests under their belt after New York State enacted its controversial bail reform laws — and The New York Post has learned most are back on the streets.

The city’s alleged “worst of the worst” repeat offenders have been arrested 485 times since bail reform went into effect in 2020. Two of ten defendants are reportedly taking advantage of the bail reform laws, have been arrested 33 times and another 22 times in the wake of bail reform.

Mayor Eric Adams expressed outrage Wednesday while discussing the findings during an afternoon news conference at One Police Plaza.

The NYPD’s list of “notable” career criminals is topped by an unnamed “Recidivist Number 1” who’s been busted a total of 101 times, with 88 coming since bail reform was enacted.
