Despite two orders from an obviously irked New Mexico U.S. District Court judge that the Reese family will be given a new trial and that father Rick and son Reese are to be released on bond, the pair remain behind bars this weekend because monitoring devices required by the order are not on hand, sources close to the case have confirmed to Gun Rights Examiner.
Yes, bail money is good for now, the source reveled, explaining relatives, good friends and well-wishers have donated to the defense fund.
They are waiting for the ankle monitors to get in for the release. United States Probation is getting them, it was explained.
What this means is, the only reason the father and son have not already been released and must wait until at least Monday to be able to rejoin their family, is because those holding them are unable to comply with the judges order, and made no preparations anticipating the likely potential that a prosecution relying on suppression of evidence to win convictions might be overruled.
Rick and Ryin Reese are the last two members of a New Mexico gun dealer family jailed for allegedly knowingly selling guns to cartel members, but who were found not guilty on the most serious charges of conspiracy and had money laundering charges against them dismissed. They were convicted on a handful of lesser charges of making false statements on forms, basically under the presumption that they should have know federal agents were lying. Wife Terri was released on bond last year, and son Remington was cleared of all charges.
Judge Robert C. Brack is not the only one disturbed (and he was, and seriously as his opinion shows) by what hes seen of prosecutorial misconduct.

Yet Eric Holder is free to walk the streets and refuse to prosecute some because of race.
The jack-booted thugs invaded their home, threw them in prison, ruined their business, and slandered their name and standing in the community.
The gov RUINED THEIR LIVES, a law-abiding family well-known to local law-enforcement.
If they can do it to these good people, they (a group led by an insect who saw nothing wrong with para-military thugs at a polling place on election day) can do it to ANYONE.
ERIC HOLDER DESPISES THE USA.
THROWN INTO US GULAG. DEFAMED, DESTROYED. ARE ***YOU*** NEXT...?
Greetings Comrade. We've been expecting you. Step this way.....
Like Gun Walker, TM, the light is beginning to shine on this one.
The GOP will not save you but an intact Constitution will.
The Constitution and adherents to it are the only thing retarding the ongoing onslaught of Gov’t Tyranny.
Wouldn't put it past the Fed Dept of Injustice to bring federal charges.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Get used to it. I think it will get a lot worse before it gets better. I would like to be on the jury.
Life in post-constitutional American can be complicated sometimes.
I agree with your response, but shit like this is what the majority of those that votes said, via their votes, they wanted to live under. “As long as I continue to get my freebies” is all they care about. I never thought that I would live to see the day when a majority, and it is growing, of people in the United States would indicate, again via their votes, that they would prefer to live as chattel owned by the State ,than free people. But it was demonestrated to me twice in four years.
Fast and furious an oldy but goody. American citizens jailed for false illegal gun claims, the regime does it and it gets swept under the rug and it includes MURDER to boot! Criminals
ATF is going for low hanging fruit.
They only want someone without assets for lawyers.
