Jersey City, NJ – Man charged in beating and robbery FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform

Aliquan Johnson, 19

Aliquan Johnson, 19, of Jersey City, was charged and arrested after allegedly beating, assaulting, and robbing another man of approximately $250 near Fairview Avenue in Jersey City.

The prosecutors moved to detain Johnson without bail, however, the court released Johnson and he was FREE TO GO under NJ 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.
