Driver in gang killing denied parole


  Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig reports that on Tuesday, parole commissioners denied parole to 32-year-old convicted murderer Ramiro Acevedo, Jr..  The hearing took place at the California State Prison in Soledad, California where Acevedo is serving a 15-to-life sentence in prison. 

  According to the District Attorney’s office, Acevedo was a member of West Sacramento’s “Broderick Boys” gang who participated in a 1999 killing. Said a press release from the D.A.:

   On August 26th, 1999, Acevedo and fellow Broderick Boy Manuel Trujillo went to the home of 18-year-old Julio Robledo to retaliate for a shooting where Trujillo was allegedly targeted. Acevedo sat in the car while Trujillo went up to the house with a shotgun and fatally shot Robledo in the chest. Others were seriously injured in the shooting.

  Acevedo received the 15-to-life sentence in a deal with prosecutors to testify against Trujillo, who was convicted by a jury of first degree murder as well as two counts of attempted murder. The parole commission praised recent efforts Acevedo has made in prison to focus his life in more positive directions, but were swayed by the serious circumstances of the case as well as Acevedo’s inadequate parole plans.   

  Supervising Deputy District Attorney Garrett Hamilton represented the District Attorney’s Office at the hearing.  Victim Service’s Program Manager Laura Valdes attended the hearing with the mother of the victim Julio Robledo.  Valdes said it was an honor and humbling to assist and support Robledo’s mother at the hearing.  “This was extremely difficult for her,” said Valdes, according to the D.A.’s office.  “She told me in Spanish that being at the hearing was fulfilling and she felt her words had an impact on the decision made by the commissioners.”

  District Attorney Jeff Reisig applauded the success of the Parole Lifer Unit and praised the decision of the commissioners.  “The commissioners’ decision was thoughtful and measured,” Reisig stated in a press release.  “Also, we cannot ignore the dedicated efforts of Mr. Hamilton, who made the case on behalf of this office, and Ms. Valdes, who helped the victim through this heartwrenching experience.”

  Acevedo will not be eligible for parole again until 2016.
