Judge denies request for pre-trial release records in case of accused serial burglar

Crime

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A judge denied the District Attorney’s request for an accused serial burglar’s pretrial supervision records, despite arguing those GPS records could link him to other crimes. The District Attorney’s Office fought to get ahold of records saying they could show the system isn’t working.

The DA asked for Jesse Mascareno-Haidle’s pre-trial supervision records, including electronic monitoring reports. His defense asked a judge to block their request, saying it violates his right to privacy.

Mascareno-Haidle is a repeat offender, tied to as many as 80 burglaries though he keeps getting released from jail. Most recently, he’s accused of breaking into cars while wearing his ankle monitor.

Just a couple of weeks ago he was charged in a new case where he’s accused of breaking into cars while on his ankle monitor. The state filed a public information request to gain access to Mascareno-Haidle’s records from his pretrial supervision which is run by the district court saying the GPS log would show how often Mascareno-Haidle broke the conditions of his release proving he should be locked up but the defense argued the information is now irrelevant.

Prosecutors argued the GPS records could help prove if Mascereno-Haidle was involved in other burglaries while he was out on release. District Court Judge Alisa Hart ultimately agreed with the defense and rejected the request for information saying he’s already behind bars again. The judge says if Mascareno-Haidle is convicted, the state could refile their requests in hopes of using those GPS records to ask for tougher sentencing.
