Bronx judge who let migrant squatters go free with no bail released suspects who beat up cop

The Bronx judge who set loose six suspected migrant squatters arrested on drugs and weapons charges last week previously released two men who beat up a police officer.

Bronx Criminal Court Judge Eugene Bowen, a Democrat elected in 2022, released the six men against the wishes of prosecutors. One of the migrants, Hector Desousa-Villalta, 24, of Venezuela, had been arrested in August on attempted murder charges before the case fell apart.
