Francisco Nunez, 32, of Paterson is a free man tonight after being released and FREE TO GO under NJ Bail Reform after being charged with breaking in his ex-girlfriends home and stealing her belongings.
Nunez allegedly broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend while she was on vacation and stole more than $10,000 worth of high-end designer clothing, shoes, pocketbooks and jewelry. An undercover detective posing as a buyer was able to nab Nunez.
Under new bail reform guidelines, Nunez was FREE TO GO after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined 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.

Bail Reform – Dangerous, Reckless, and a Taxpayer Burden

A woman’s ex-boyfriend broke into her Saddle Brook home, stole more than $10,000 worth of high-end designer clothing, shoes, pocketbooks and jewelry — then was busted in Fort Lee by undercover detectives posing as buyers, authorities said.
The Saddle River Road victim was on vacation when 32-year-old Francisco Nunez of Paterson broke in through a window, Police Chief Robert Kugler said Saturday.
You’re being lied to…
Unaccountable pretrial release is reckless and dangerous – with zero regard for victims or criminal accountability.
