October 4, 1974 CAttK.) STAR Page Anticrime system is ex WASHINGTON (AP) — District attorneys who have tested a quick and tough system for prosecuting habitual criminals call it a promising weapon against rising national crime rales. They delivered that report Thursday to Atty. Gen. William B. Saxbe, who plans to implement the system in 10 cities as the Ford administration's first effort lo deal with the increase in crime. Saxbe conferred wilh prosecutors who administered the system in the Brooklyn and Bronx sections of New York City and with other criminal justice authorities as Ihe FBI issued new statistics showing still another boost in the nation's crime rate. The FBI said the volume of serious crime rose 16 per cent in the first six months of 1974 compared with the same period a year ago. Brooklyn and Bronx prosed cutors said top-priority prosecution has produced a high conviction rate and long prison sentences for repeat offenders. The system works this way; After arresting an individual, police review his past record of arrests and convictions. If the individual has several recent offenses, his case would be assigned lo a special team of prosecutors thai would press the courl for a swifl Irial and a harsh sentence. The prosecutors would inform the judge about Ihe defendants pasl record^ TThe_grimary target is the violenl offender. The high-priority^ cases_npw come to trial in 75 days, while it sometimes takes two years to try other defendanls handled routinely, he added. Bronx Disl. Atty. Mario Merola said lhal 17 per cent of the defendanls channeled Ihrough the special syslem are convicted. The rate could be as low as 50 per cent with routine treatmenl, he eslimaled. Without special handling, cases often collapse as wit. nesses die, move away or for• get what Ihey saw while wailing years for a Irial, Ihe prosecutors told reporters after meeting with Saxbe. The system also has encouraged judges lo impose longer prison senlences, they added. Merola said the average for defendants given special treatment is almost 10 years.
