He has the same name as Ricardo "Richard" Ramirez, the infamous killer. He has to serve half of his sentence before being eligible for parole and before he pled guilty, he was facing a maximum sentence of 1,000 years (as part of the plea agreement, all charges except the murder charge were dismissed). 104 felony charges and eight misdemeanor charges were dismissed, for a total of 112 dismissed charges.

His prosecutor, Brian Price (one of the harsher prosecutors here), said at the Prosecutor's Academy (it was open to the public, so this isn't confidential information) that if the case went to trial, he would be asking for the maximum 1,000 years. Does anybody here think he deserved the maximum sentence?

Umm.... yes? They dismissed a bunch of counts of possessing child pornography and he killed someone. I'd be fine with the 1000 years sentence (which likely would have been much less because of serving concurrently)

The child pornography counts were authorized to be served consecutively at the judge's discretion.

Murder? The only option should be death by Winchester or death by Colt.

.22 round would save the taxpayers a ton of money compared to roughly $30k a year for the rest of his worthless life.

The death penalty costs more than 27.5 to 55 years in prison (depending on how long he serves) due to appeals, attorneys' fees and longer trials.

I'll pay for any round deemed necessary out of my pocket.

If he was charged with capital murder, he would have been eligible for the death penalty or life without parole, but the murder he committed didn't fit the criteria to be considered capital murder.

In addition to the murder and child pornography charges, he was also charged with possession with intent to distribute four to four hundred grams of drugs in penalty group 2 or 2A, possession of four ounces to five pounds of marijuana, possession of one to four grams of drugs in penalty group 2, theft of a firearm (those four charges are felonies), possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, four counts of possession of less than 28 grams of a controlled substance in penalty group 3, possession of a dangerous drug, unlawful carrying of a weapon, and possession of less than 28 grams of a controlled substance in penalty group 4. All twelve of those charges were dismissed as well.

He's the first Ricardo Ramirez in the court records

Child pornography charges alone are worth 1000 year sentence - sick *******!!

Maybe if he was producing it or distributing it, but I don't think he deserves 1,000 years for possession. I wouldn't really care that much if he got 1,000 years, though, since he's also a murderer.

90 percent of those who get caught possessing child porn, have also produced or distributed it. 40% will have raped children at some point.

If he produced it or distributed it, he would have been charged with production or distribution, since those have harsher penalties than possession, and his prosecutor said that for certain cases, he charges the defendants with everything he can, so he definitely would have charged him with production or distribution if he could have, since he was planning on asking for the maximum 1,000 years if the case went to trial.

He wasn't charged because they did not have evidence or enough evidence to charge him

I am willing to bet any amount of money, this person has sent pics to another person at some point in his life. These disgusting individuals have very extensive methods of trading photos.
