NJ Bail Reform: Twice-Freed North Arlington Ex-Con Busted Again

NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. -- New Jersey's bail reform law strikes again: A two-time North Arlington ex-con freed by judges after two recent arrests will likely return to state prison if he's convicted of carrying a firearm during a traffic stop.

Danny J. Lazo, 31, who's spent more than six years of his life in prison, was arrested twice in Essex County earlier this year -- for resisting arrest by force and eluding police in June, then for hindering his prosecution by trying to get witnesses to recant the following month, records show.

Each time a judge released him, with conditions, under New Jersey's 2017 bail reform law, records show.

Lazo had served two prison stretches for robbery convictions -- one from February 2007 to late December 2011, and another from January 2013 to March 2015 -- both out of Essex, as well.

He remained held in the Hudson County Detention Center in Kearny pending a hearing following an arrest last Tuesday in Jersey City, apparently after a traffic stop turned up pot and a pellet gun.

Lazo is charged with drug and weapons offenses, including being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
