The Los Alamos Magistrate Court has granted a request to release Rowena MacDonald into the custody of police in St. Louis County, Mo., once her case in district court here is resolved.
MacDonald is being held in jail for allegedly holding a dealer’s drugs while he was allegedly trying to make a drug deal in White Rock.
MacDonald’s attorney Kari Morrissey told Magistrate Judge Pat Casados that she is working to get her Los Alamos cases resolved so she can go back to Missouri as soon as possible. She also requested that MacDonald be placed on monitored release, while her Los Alamos case is completed.
“It’s my belief that the court doesn’t have to hold Miss MacDonald in secure custody pending extradition,” she said. “ ... It seems to me that we’re dealing with someone who isn’t really a flight risk. ... It doesn’t seem really necessary.”
She noted that while waiting to be extradited back to Missouri before, MacDonald was on an ankle bracelet and did not try to flee.
