Ramirez Left US For Colombia Without Telling Probation Now Caught in Texas Sentenced to 7 Months

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 5 – Robinson Ramirez was sentenced to 72 months imprisonment and five years of Supervised Released for cocaine and heroin - back in 2008. On December 5 for a Violation of Supervised Release he appeared again in front of U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein.     Ramirez was being supervised by the U.S. Department of Probation in South Florida when he left for Colombia, without telling his probation officer. Then he attempted to re-enter the United States through Texas. He got caught.   Judge Hellerstein on December 5 said this was a serious offense, that Supervised Release is an integral part of criminal justice sentencing that the public counts on. He sentenced Ramirez to seven months in prison, and another three years of Supervised Release. (He explained the reduction in Supervised Release as being based on the Department of Probation being overstretched).     Ramirez has three children, two of them ages five and two, in Florida. He requested and obtained a recommendation to be in a prison in South Florida, to facilitate family visits. The case is US v. Ramirez, 06-cr-375 (Hellerstein).
