State seeks to revoke conditions of release for repeat offender

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Prosecutors have filed a motion to revoke the conditions of release for a 21-year-old man with a history of run-ins with police.


Donovan Maez was most recently arrested this last Sunday. A warrant was out for his arrest after police say he failed to report to a treatment center.

According to a criminal complaint, Maez was located at a home in southeast Albuquerque Sunday. As agents placed him under arrest, they found a 9mm handgun on him in addition to meth and drug paraphernalia.

Maez is scheduled for a custody hearing next Wednesday as prosecutors will ask to keep him behind bars until trial.

Maez spent several months behind bars after being suspected in the 2015 drive-by shooting of 17-year-old Jaydon Chavez-Silver.

Charges were later dropped against him and his family filed a complaint to the Civilian Police Oversight Agency saying a detective on the case intimidated and coerced witnesses.

The agency found no wrongdoing in the case, saying recordings and transcripts of interviews proved otherwise.

Three others were arrested and charged with Chavez-Silver's murder. The man police say fired the shots, Esias Madrid, was sentenced to life in prison. Another man, Dominic Conyers, received 12 years due to a plea deal.

The man police say was the driver, Nicholas Gonzales Villasenor, was sentenced to one year behind bars.
