Schumer says they've already asked the Probation Department to look into the Renz case. He now hopes they pass Senator Richie's law in Albany.
"Those who tamper with the devices that theyâ??re supposed to use are up to no good, and making it a felony is a very good idea," said Schumer.
Schumer says he is looking into the possibility of a similar bill at the federal level.
Senator Richie plans to push for the passage of the anti-tampering bill before the legislative session ends next week.
