ALBANY, NY. (THECOUNT) — Anthony Ojeda, the Albany, NY man facing manslaughter and assault charges in the death of a 6-week-old infant, has been released from jail under the new bail reform law instituted January 1, 2020.
Ojeda was released to probation under the condition that he not leave Albany County and must wear an electronic device.
Ojeda is charged with manslaughter and assault. Police say Ojeda told investigators he believes the child died after ingesting meth December 3rd.
Ojeda admitted there were two occasions in early November where he “may have” injured the child.
After reviewing medical records prosecutors say show several of the infant’s ribs were broken and after reviewing video of Ojeda’s police interview, the judge decided to keep Ojeda in jail until a grand jury makes a determination whether to indict, reports CBS6Albany.
