Voters to consider amending NM bail system

from Santa Fe New Mexican

The New Mexico Constitution guarantees virtually every criminal defendant a right to bail and, with it, a chance at getting out of jail while awaiting trial. Now voters have the choice in the general election of changing the constitution to allow district court judges greater discretion by denying bail altogether for defendants considered dangerous or who have histories of flouting court orders. Prosecutors say this would ensure that the most dangerous defendants cannot get back on the street at any price. more
