(Scroll down for video) A community was shocked when a man accused of murder was arrested for a second time, weeks after his release.
The attorney for the man of Albuquerque, New Mexico, fought hard for his client to be let out of jail while awaiting trial for a murder charge.
He got what he wanted, but just two weeks later, he was taken back to jail for trying to have sex with a 13-year-old girl.
Walter Brown is accused of communicating with what he thought was a 13-year-old girl. He allegedly exchanged explicit text messages and nude photos of himself with the child.
When Brown went to meet with the child he was arrested on charges of criminal sexual communication with a minor and attempted commission of criminal sexual penetration of a minor.
Brown was originally arrested for stabbing a man in the heart and killing him. In that case, the judge ordered $250,000 bond.
However, his lawyers argued that court psychologists approved pre-trial release. The lawyer also claimed that the $250,000 bond was unconstitutional.
The lawyer took the case all the way to the New Mexico State Supreme Court and won. The court ordered Brown’s bail be lowered and he was released.
However, just a few weeks later, he was arrested for his attempt to have sex with the underage girl.
