Eric Ramirez Case Continued

The defendant's attorney says the 20-year-old is "devastated."

Eric Ramirez did not speak a word during his first court appearance this morning.

The 20-year-old Oxford resident, who is facing multiple charges in relation to the March 9 car crash that resulted in the death of Brandon Giordano, walked into court with his parents by his side.

He did not enter a plea and the case was continued to Oct. 25. The reason for the lengthy continuance, according to Ramirez' attorney, Tara Knight, is due to the volume of material in the case file.

Ramirez offered no comment as he walked out of court. His attorney, Knight, said this on his behalf:

“He is devastated by this tragedy. This was a very close friend of his.”

According to police, Ramirez led officers on a pursuit in his Ford Mustang covertible that ended in a crash which killed Giordano, a passenger who was 15 years old.

Please explain how "the kid was no good" I have known Eric my whole life and he has never done anything to imply that he wasn't a good kid. He doesn't drink or do drugs or do anything to get himself into trouble for that matter. This all happened because of undercarriage lights. This was not something done maliciously. If you're going to comment on something learn your facts. Clearly you have no idea. My heart goes out to Brandon and his family but it also breaks for Eric and the struggles he is now facing with not only all of this but the loss of his best friend.
