News Release | Monroe County Office of the District Attorney

Public Service Announcement, reference to Jexel Ortiz-Rosas

July 13, 2017

Over the strenuous objection of the Office of District Attorney, a Monroe County Judge has released Jexel Ortiz-Rosas, 23, of Mount Pocono, on nominal bail.

Ortiz-Rosas has been charged with attempted murder for his role in a brutal beating and stabbing of a young man aged 19 over last summer.  Although the Court’s bail decision has been appealed by the Commonwealth, Ortiz-Rosas remains free in the community. 

The Commonwealth believes that Ortiz-Rosas poses a significant risk to the community.

A condition of Ortiz-Rosas' bail requires him to remain under house arrest at 151 Snowshoe Court, Apartment 202, Mount Pocono, PA 18344. 

If Ortiz-Rosas is observed elsewhere please contact and immediately report his whereabouts to either the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department at (570) 895-2400, the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office Detective Division at (570) 517-3052, or contact the Monroe County 911 Center via their non-emergency line at (570) 992-9911.

Approved for distribution by E. David Christine, Jr., District Attorney
