ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A San Juan County District Court judge has ruled to hold Robert Tyler Walker in jail until his next court appearance. Walker is currently facing charges of aggravated assault and battery in addition to intimidation of a witness.


On Oct. 25, less than 24 hours after he was convicted of a handle of charges, he allegedly broke into a home in Bloomfield and assaulted a man so bad he fractured his skull.

With Walker back in trouble with the law, the San Juan County Sheriff’s Department expressed frustration with probation sentencing back in October, given his extensive criminal record.

According to Chief Deputy District Attorney Dustin O’Brien, the prosecutor assigned to Walker’s case in October felt probation was appropriate given Walker had no previous convictions. The San Juan County Sheriff’s Department disagreed.
