May 2, 2013 -Alberqurque, N.M. - Gerald Madrid is a bail bond agent in Albuquerque who regularly attends church. He's also a member of the choir at St. Jude Thaddeus Parish where he's usually playing the flute. On Sunday April 30th 2013 during church services Madrid witnessed a lone assailant attacking fellow choir members. He selflessly dropped his flute and rushed the perpetrator and likely saved the choir directors life. Madrid is currently recuperating from the multiple stab wounds he received at The University of New Mexico Hospital. Originally the bond was set at 75k for the accused perpetrator Lawrence Capener, but on the urging of Madrid's family members on Monday judge Sharon Walton raised the bond to 250k.

How Bail Bonds Work
The process of writing a bail bond has to do with acquiring a defendants release for a monetary fee. By taking in a fee it can insure that the defendant will show up to court on the date mandated by the judge. A defendant’s fee is usually determined by a judge or a fee table. The system of bail exists so that the defendant can have the opportunity to continue his or her life while waiting for their trial to end. Read More

John Noguez’s attorney is attempting to post bail at 600k instead of the 1.16 million determined by Superior Court Judge Shelly Torrealba. At the time of publishing this story, the Assessor's official website is blanketed with photos and videos touting his background in community leadership and values.
