ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Steven Casaus, the step father of Omaree Varela was back in court Tuesday morning. A judge decided he should be let out of jail, but he’s far from being a free man.
That judge agreed he should be released, but Casaus has three state cases pending against him and all three judges have to agree to let him out. Once he’s out, he will go right back in – this time – into federal custody.
That federal charge is from his arrest last April where he was in possession of a gun after being arrested for dealing meth to an undercover cop.
