Giants fan beating suspect up for parole hearing
Sunday, June 19, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The main suspect in the brutal beating of a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium in March is scheduled for a hearing to determine whether he should remain in jail for violating terms of his parole.
Giovanni Ramirez has not been charged in the attack on Bryan Stow and police have been in no hurry to present a case to prosecutors, while Ramirez, a convicted felon, has been kept in jail for parole violations.
Monday's hearing is to determine whether he violated conditions of his parole. Police say they found a gun in a laundry basket at the house where he was arrested.
Ramirez's lawyers say their client was nowhere near Dodger Stadium at the time of the March 31 attack.
