A Garden City man was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison Monday for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
In May, 43-year-old Juan Fores-Ramirez went to the house of a victim protected by a civil protection order. He threatened the victim with a gun and fired one round in the house, which almost hit a sleeping child.
Flores-Ramirez was arrested for several felonies including aggravated assault, first-degree stalking, and intimidating a witness. He pled guilty in November to aggravated assault with an enhancement for using a deadly weapon in the commission of a crime.
Ada County Prosecutors asked the judge for a sentence of 20 years with 10 years to be served before being eligible for parole.
“I want to say thank you for the victims’ bravery in this case,” said Ada County Prosecutor Jan Bennetts. “Thank you also to the Boise Police Department for their thorough investigation.”
On Monday, Ada County District Judge Patrick Miller sentenced him to 15 years in prison, with five years fixed before being eligible for parole. Flores-Ramirez was also ordered to not have contact with the victims for 15 years.
