Albuquerque, NM – A woman who was charged with battery upon a police officer and aggravated battery upon a heath care worker is now FREE TO GO – smiling her way out of the courtroom – thanks to NM Bail Reform.
Kortnee Currie, during her first appearance before Judge Rosemary Cosgrove-Aguilar, was released and FREE TO GO under NM Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined that she 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.
Currie was charged with battery upon a police officer (4th degree felony) and aggravated battery upon a heath care worker (3rd degree felony).
The release is the result of newly enacted Supreme Court guidelines orchestrated by Chief Justice Daniels that virtually eliminates accountable pretrial release and bail.
