NM:Judge relaxes release conditions for Reese father and son

In an order granting a motion "supported by good cause" to amend conditions of release filed yesterday, Judge Robert C. Brack of the District Court of the United States for the District of New Mexico in Las Cruces ordered that “ankle monitoring devices worn by Rick Reese and Ryin Reese are to be removed.”

“It is further ordered,” the judge mandated, “that the Defendants … shall be allowed to travel freely within the boundaries of the State of New Mexico [and] that the curfew imposed upon the Defendants … shall be modified to be from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m.

“[A]ll other conditions remain in force,” the order declared.

Father Rick and son Ryin are part of a family of gun dealers 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, son Remington was cleared of all charges, and a new trial for the outstanding convictions has been ordered following the judge’s ruling that the prosecutor withheld evidence from the jury.
