Escape charges filed against woman accused of bringing drugs to jailed murder suspect

From the Las Vegas Optic

A Las Vegas woman who was jailed for violating the conditions of her release while on house arrest is now charged with escape. She has also been released on house arrest again.

Skye A. Sedillo, 22, of Las Vegas, was charged Dec. 1 with one felony count of escape from a community custody release program. Sedillo was already in custody at the San Miguel County Detention Center for violating the terms of her release in a case from August where she’s accused of attempting to sneak a package containing methamphetamine and heroin to her boyfriend Rodger A. Tait-Gomez, an inmate at SMCDC who is currently being held on multiple charges including first-degree murder.

The escape charge was filed because Sedillo was not at the home she’d been ordered to stay in as part of the terms of her release when an investigator with the Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office stopped by for a check.

During a Dec. 2 hearing, Judge Christian Moñtano ordered Sedillo held on $5,000 cash-only bond. However, during a Dec. 3 review hearing, Judge Melanie Rivera reduced the bond to an unsecured $5,000, and released Sedillo to the custody of a family member. Sedillo was ordered to remain on house arrest with a GPS ankle monitor, and she was released from SMCDC Dec. 4.
