SAN JUAN CO., N.M.- A repeat offender has been arrested for the 14th time since March 2016.


In November, Robert Tyler was arrested for aggravated battery, burglary and larceny. A month earlier he was released from jail on other charges.

According to the San Juan County Sheriff's Office, Tyler has lucked out while his cases make their way through the court system.

At times, he has been placed on conditional release and had charges combined and dropped.

However, after his latest arrest, a judge ordered him to be held without bond.

The San Juan County sheriff has been frustrated by Tyler’s cases.

“Nobody is holding the prosecutors and the judges accountable. And that's frustrating," said San Juan County Sheriff Ken Christensen.

The San Juan County District Attorney is seeking stricter sentencing for Walker's newly acquired charges. According to the district attorney’s office, between the new charges and other pending charges, Walker faces up to 20-and-a-half years in prison, if convicted.
