Daniel Furesz, 68, of Bergenfield, an ex-con with a long history of arrests, was charged again with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon – and now FREE TO GO thanks to NJ Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation “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.
Furesz was sentenced in 2011 for being in possession of a bulletproof vest, a gas mask, a Colt Model AR-15, seven shotguns, 10 handguns, 18 other rifles and thousands of rounds of ammunition in his home and car.
Furesz was also convicted of lewdness and sentenced to 16 months in 1998. Records show that Furesz has been arrested over 23 times for lewdness and indecent exposure.
Another “validated pretrial risk assessment” Failure.
