A San Rafael man arrested in July on suspicion of attempting to lure minors in to his minivan with the intent of committing lewd acts with them plead guilty to a misdemeanor loitering charge Thursday, according to the Marin Independent Journal.
Isaias Delfido Gramajo Ramos, 32, was sentenced to 170 days in jail and was given credit for time served. However, an investigation into his citizenship status is ongoing and Ramos is still being detained on a federal immigration hold, the Marin IJ reports.
Around 9:30 p.m. on July 14, two young teenaged girls were in the Bret Harte neighborhood when Ramos approached them in a mini van. He offered the girls money in an attempt to lure them into his van with sexual intentions, according to police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher. Police officers were able to track Ramos to his house on Woodland Avenue and arrested him without incident, Rohrbacher told Patch.
Ramos was booked into Marin County Jail on one felony count of communicating with a minor with the intent of committing lewd acts and loitering in an area for the purpose of prostitution.
Ramos was placed on probation for three years. If he is deported, he must contact probation officers once a month and notify authorities within 48 hours of returning to the Bay Area. He is also banned from contacting the girls or coming within 100 yards of playgrounds, schools and youth or day care centers, the Marin IJ reports.
