The main suspect in the beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow had a parole violation against him regarding that assault dismissed Friday at a Los Angeles hearing, but he could spend up to a year behind bars for a separate weapons charge.
Giovanni Ramirez, 31, attended a Board of Parole Probable Cause hearing Friday with his attorney. The hearing is meant to assess the evidence that parole agents have gathered against the parolee for their violation.
Ramirez was charged with violating his parole because he beat Stow, according to California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation spokesman Luis Patino. That charge was dismissed because of lack of evidence. The parole investigation into the beating is completely separate from the LAPD investigation, which has yet to be handed to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.
Ramirez’ is also charged by parole with possessing a gun and ammunition, Patino said. Those charges were sustained and he was given a 12-month revocation.
Ramirez and his attorney rejected the offer, however, and a full revocation hearing will be held in public June 20.
