Documents detail misconduct by L.A. sheriff’s deputies

Antonio Ramirez DA reject memo

The moth­er of Ant­o­nio Ramirez’s daugh­ters al­leged years of ab­use at the hands of the deputy, and in­ter­views with the chil­dren cor­rob­or­ated some of the claims, ac­cord­ing to a 2013 dis­trict at­tor­ney’s memo. Pro­sec­utors de­clined to file charges, cit­ing a lack of phys­ic­al evid­ence. The Sher­iff’s De­part­ment handed Ramirez a 15-day sus­pen­sion for fam­ily vi­ol­ence. The wo­man was later awar­ded $185,000 in a civil suit filed against Ramirez.
