SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - A magistrate has ruled that a former Santa Fe attorney again accused of driving while intoxicated will have to use a blood-alcohol monitoring device upon his release.

Authorities say Carlos Fierro was arrested early Saturday after he failed field sobriety tests, refused a blood test and was charged with aggravated DWI.

He was arraigned Tuesday. Bond was lowered to $10,000 cash or surety and the magistrate also ordered Fierro not to carry firearms or weapons and not to drink alcohol or enter any establishments that serve or sell alcohol.

Fierro was convicted of killing a pedestrian in Santa Fe in 2008 while driving impaired.

He was released from prison in 2012 after serving about three years of a seven-year sentence.

Fierro received good-time consideration and was credited with time served.
