Repeat offender Majestic Howard to be released again before trial

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A repeat offender who’s been connected to several high-profile cases will soon be back on the streets.

Last week, 29-year-old Majestic Howard was arrested after allegedly crashing into a sign outside Twisters in the Northeast Heights.

Police say he used a stolen car and had a stolen gun on him.

He is connected to 11 other felony cases, which have been dismissed because he is “incompetent to stand trial.”

In court Tuesday, the state tried to hold him behind bars until trial, saying he is a threat to the community,

Judge J. Richard Brown released him on his own recognizance citing incompetence and lack of felony convictions.

Howard will have pretrial services and will be supervised.
