Joe Jenaro Price, 52, 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, and conspiracy to commit bribery of a witness.
Price was later released 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.
