Escapee receives probation

-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma

Susan Reass, the woman who escaped from custody during a medical checkup Feb 16, received a year of unsupervised probation for her attempt, according to magistrate court documents. She must also pay $73 in court costs.
Conditions of her probation include staying away from establishments that sell or serve liquor. She must also not be in possession of firearms, explosive or any other type of explosive device.
Bill Snowden, Reass’ attorney from the Santa Fe public defender’s office, said the probation was achieved through a plea agreement.
“Essentially, it was part of a plea that the DA (Kent Wahlquist) and I worked on,” Snowden said. “Part of the agreement was that she returns to where she was living out of state. If she didn’t leave, she was looking at more trouble.”
Another reason for the probation was that Reass had already spent time in jail for her previous, driver-related offenses.
On that night of Feb 16, Reass was arrested on a probation violation for a previous offense. Her blood alcohol level was too high for her to be admitted into the jail, so she was taken to the Los Alamos Medical Center for evaluation.
While at the hospital, Reass apparently asked the officers if she could use the bathroom. She used the bathroom on at least two occasions.
