Jaycob Price, of Albuquerque, was arrested on December 15 on charges of First Degree Murder (felony murder), armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, possession of a firearm or destructive device by a felon, bribery of a witness, tampering with evidence, and conspiracy to commit bribery of a witness.
Price is the co-defendant and son of murder suspect Joe Price – who also has been released and FREE TO GO under NM Bail Reform. Price is currently on parole for aggravated burglary with a deadly weapon.
After his arrest, Price was later released by Judge Cindy Leos and FREE TO GO under NM Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined that he was not a danger to the community or a flight risk and therefore should not be subject to any accountable release – just a “promise” to appear.
The release is the result of newly enacted Supreme Court guidelines orchestrated by Chief Justice Daniels that virtually eliminates accountable pretrial release and bail for criminal defendants.
