Rocky Marquez Walked Out of an MCSO Jail Yesterday (He Was Not Supposed to Do That)

Rocky Marquez strolled out of the Lower Buckeye Jail yesterday, which happens to be a problem, because he's supposed to be in jail for a while.

Marquez, 33, was "erroneously released" from the jail, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

MCSO Sergeant Brandon Jones tells New Times investigators believe Marquez somehow convinced another inmate to switch identities with him, as this yet-unnamed inmate had his bond posted and was all set to walk out the door himself -- legally.

Jones says Marquez switched ID wristbands with the other inmate, and while the wristbands have pictures, Jones says the mugshots are pretty small and the guys look similar.

Additionally, Marquez must have given the other inmate's date of birth and other random personal information to the officer at the exit door to convince him that he was the other guy.

"It's a lot more than taking this guy's ID band," Jones says.

Marquez has been in the jail since September 2010 while he works his way through the court process, as he's facing charges of perjury, forgery, witness tampering, DUI, misconduct involving weapons, and leaving the scene of an accident.

It's safe to say that taking another inmate's ID to escape from jail is going to add to that list.

The inmate who forked over his ID will also get to face charges, Jones says, although they haven't yet pinned the specific charges.

Jones says the sheriff's office is still figuring out the details, and the inmate who gave up his ID "gave us very little information."

The sheriff's office says don't make any attempt to go near Marquez if you see him, and just call 9-1-1 instead.

We didn't ask if "cell phone technology" would be used to capture Marquez.

I had the pleasure of being in lower buckeye hell, for a first time offender who is disabled, Who should not have served time any way as my civil rights were Voilated by AZ Peace officer, who broke my wrist, did not read my rights searched my car and home without a WARRANT. Did i forget to say i was married before last name Sanchez they found the old DL, getting back to lower Buck eye there is know way a person walks out of that Jail, from the time your there the ,first 24 hrs re in a room well  i a women so we had 34 women i cell, you could not lay your head,anyway it was sick inhuman as many times as i had my finger prints taken, side of my hand taken phota taken before and after you leave, there is no way this was not a job the secured people who walk around acting like God, you are treating like a dog in that place and Latinos are treated the same' there is not discriminated maybe in other parts, this guy could not have walked out of that jail without, some one form inside helping him and that happens a lot,  did not think it was going to be a picnic when i went but i thought i would be a able to lay my body down, there was no a place it pictures finger prints,over and over some body from the inside help this guy get out' Also have to say out the first 24 hrs all the women were treated the same, now i do not no where they are keeping these people that are being held ' But it makes no sense,This is getting out of hand my son who is 1/2 Mexican i have experience them also being races towards him.Also with me and my old DL name Sanchez disabled women 110 pds, the Peace Officers had to double hand cuff me, all i told them was i am disabled'

They ask you your name, your date of birth, and date of arrest.

Then they ask what were you arrested for.

Then they tell you to line up against the wall on the white line.

Don't take off your wristband or you will not be released.

I guess they were too busy fucking with people waiting to get out by keeping them in hours longer for no reason to notice they weren't doing their job very well.

Wow who could have guessed the MCSO was incompetent.

Crazy world.

It is only becuz they are true paytriots and our investigating Obama's berth certifiket that they do not have the man power to make sur that they do not release the wrong prisner. It is more portant to go after the sochlist commie prezident than care about common thugs.

Another story about Barney Fife Arpaio's jails. It has only been 15 years of this kind of nonsense while running the MCSO into the ground.

Typical Arpaio logic, blame the inmate and hold no one accountable. Arpaio will not remember this incident by tomorrow.

What would you expect from this sheriff's department?more concerned with chasing dishwashers and what underwear color should the inmates use than real law enforcement.

Suggested Questions for MCSO Random  I.Q. Test. 

1. On which side of the bars should a Deputy place the bad guy?

2. Should a Deputy allow a bad guy to run out to the store for a slurpee?

3. When transporting a bad guy somewhere is it ok to let them drive?

4. If a bad guy tells you "Sheriff Joe said I could leave now" should you take him at his word? 

5. Is it ok to loan a bad guy your badge and ID card to play a joke on the Deputy at the door?

6. Should a Deputy allow a bad guy to go home for lunch?

7. Should a Deputy pay any attention to which bad guy is leaving the jail?

8. When booking a bad guy into jail should you allow him to keep his weapons with him?

9. When booking a bad guy into jail should you beat him before or after booking?

10.Should a Deputy loan a bad guy his keys if he promises to return them promptly?

Arpaio planned this release (mis-hap),has his posse on it and will have a news conference soon  to close another case.

Maybe some of the Jail Enhancement Funds (JEF) could be used to purchase finger print reading devices to confirm the prints of those being released, instead of having to rely on a wristband with a small picture.

YPS may be able to clarify if this is workable. I haven't seen the release process at MCSO so I don't know.

Seems a better usage of JEF than in days past.

How about at least just using a full size regular mugshot instead of a tiny wristband picture. That's the reason they take the stupid things. No need for high tech.

 But Tommy, do you really think MCSO can get a fingerprint reader for less than $100M?  I assume they want a new one, but maybe they could troll craigslist looking for one.

Eleanor Holguin

Prior to being released, each inmate is fingerprinted and made to sign out for their property.  Those fingerprints and signatures are supposed to be compared with fingerprints and signatures collected when they are first booked into jail along with the booking photo of the person.  It sounds like someone got lazy on this one.  It certainly doesn't help that hiring has been frozen for detention staff until just recently and the jails are severely understaffed.  

david saint

and why are they so understaffed? Where does joe allocate the most resources? Immigration! Just more evidence of incompetence at MCSO.

Two things....

1. Who in they're right mind would want to work for MCSO under Arpaio at this point in time.
2. If Arpaio wasn't losing millions of dollars of the tax payers money at every turn on civil suit judgments and spending millions more on defending his corruption, then maybe, just maybe MCSO would have the budget to hire more detention officers.

I mean, you know, it's just a thought...

Smart people don't go to work for Arpaio.  What that leaves is  . . .

Kenny Powers

Good point. While there must be SOME good, smart people there, the reality is that MCSO is the bottom of the barrel, and will hire officers that other cities fire for stealing, lying, etc.

Makes sense. Thanks for your feedback.

Maybe the lawsuits are starting to have a positive outcome....
