Bernalillo County, NM – Man charged with aggravated assault, child abuse FREE TO GO under NM Bail Reform

Leon Ruben Salazar, 36, was arrested on Aug 28 on a warrant issued on Aug 10 for aggravated assault, willful assault with a deadly weapon, and child abuse.

Salazar made his first appearance the next day and was 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.


New Mexico Bail Reform, Risk Assessments, and Pretrial Services

  • ZERO Accountability
  • ZERO Deterrent
  • ZERO Supervision
  • ZERO concern for victims
  • ZERO Bail…just a “pinky promise” to return
  • Bail Reform – Dangerous, Reckless, and a Taxpayer Burden


You’ve been LIED to New Mexico…NM Bail Reform is RECKLESS, DANGEROUS, and YOU are PAYING for it.

Defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
