Victim, Arrest, Release. NEW Victim, Arrest, Release.
New Mexico is in crisis mode as the effects of bail reform and the Arnold tool continue to destroy criminal accountability.
New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez said it best…
“Here in New Mexico, we’ve been working hard to crack down on a catch and release revolving door criminal justice system – a problem that irresponsible interpretations and rules implemented by courts and the Arnold pretrial risk assessment tool have only aggravated. New Mexico implemented this pretrial risk assessment tool to devastating results.”
KRQE – May 22 2018
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s no secret Albuquerque has an out of control crime problem and this case sums it all up. An accused burglar getting popped again, the day after getting out of jail.
State Police say they saw Jeremy Pitts in a stolen truck near Menaul and University on April 18.
Officers say they saw the 28-year-old driving the stolen truck, and crashing it into a fence. That’s when police say Pitts got out, and ran into a nearby shop.
Pitts had a different story for officers when they told him what they saw.
Pitts: “I didn’t see anybody bail from the car. Because the car spun out, I took off running.”
Officer: “You just took off running?”
Pitts: “F*** yeah! The f***er almost hit me. What do you mean?”
As officers try to get the truth out of Pitts, he gives police a glimpse into his criminal history.
Officer: “What’s all this paperwork here?”
Pitts: “Uh, my jail paperwork. I just got out.”
Officer: “For what?”
Pitts: “For aggravated burglary.”
