Judges grants bail for suspects arrested at New Mexico compound

A New Mexico state judge denied requests by prosecutors to deny bail for the five suspects arrested last week during a raid at a compound where eleven starving childrens were discovered.

The judge issued the decision Monday evening following a lengthy hearing in Taos during which prosecutors said the five defendants including the two men and three women were training for possible terror attacks.

Prosecutors described the compound as being fortified by old tires and wooden pallets and presented evidence of the weapons training by Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, CNN reported.

Despite the allegations and Judge Sarah Backus expressing concerns by “troubling facts,” she ruled that prosecutors had failed to articulate any specific threats to the community.

As a result, the judge $20,000 bond for each and ordered that they wear ankle monitors and have weekly contact with their attorneys.
