Giovanni Ramirez at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility

This is to confirm that Giovanni Ramirez arrived at the Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego, California on 6/24/11 @ approx. 1235 hours.

Ramirez is expected to serve 10 months at RJ Donovan and is ineligible for reduction of that time.

The parole revocation hearing for Giovanni Ramirez was held on June 20, 2011 at the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail. At that hearing, Board of Parole Hearings Deputy Commissioner Ali Zarrinnam amended the proposed violation from ‘possession of a firearm by a felon’ to ‘access to a weapon by a felon.’ The commissioner found good cause on the amended violation.

Media note only: Some media members have requested the new prison photo of Inmate Ramirez. Please note that in compliance with a request from the LAPD investigators working on the ongoing investigation into the Brian Stow beating case, CDCR will not release the photo. LAPD is concerned that the release of the photo could be detrimental to their investigation or taint potential witnesses or a potential jury pool.
