"Breaking Bad" actor Steven Michael Quezada is scheduled to headline a New Mexico Attorney General's summit on fighting crime.
Quezada, who played DEA agent Steven Gomez in the hit AMC-TV series, is set to speak Friday in Albuquerque at the Office of the Attorney General's "3rd Annual Summit on Community Violence." Quezada is an elected member of the Albuquerque Public Schools board.
Attorney General Hector Balderas is hosting the summit as pressure mounts to reform the state's judicial system. Critics say courts are failing to keep violent offenders off the street and blame the courts for releasing a violent offender who recently killed a Rio Rancho police officer.
Albuquerque police also is under a federal court-ordered plan to reform its force amid allegations of excessive force.
