A Texas man prosecutors say stalked a 13-year-old girl, tattooed her name all over his body and shot her 53-year-old father has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.The young teenage girl had to listen in court while the defendant asked the judge for a second chance.


This case is considered to be one of Dallas County’s most severe stalking cases. 23-year-old Gabriel Ramirez was sentenced on Thursday in a Dallas County courtroom after previously pleading guilty to charges of stalking and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in a case in which involves the suspect focusing on a young girl.

NBC Chicago reports:

Ramirez called a 13-year-old teen girl numerous times, sent her flowers before her birthday and went to her house only to be told by her father to go away, according to an affadavit.

But Ramirez returned to her house in early June of 2013.When the  girl’s father answered the door, Ramirez shot him three times, hitting him in the chest, liver and stomach.

Even after the shooting, the  girl’s father survived but he has nearly $90,000 in medical bills after two surgeries. The victim said his life will never be the same.

Littered on the suspect’s body, were nearly a dozen tattoos  with the young girl’s name, her birthday and even her address.

According to what Ramirez said in court, he regrets the tattoos, which he said were all done while he was under the heavy influence of drugs. He admitted to using cocaine, heroin, marijuana laced with PCP, Xanax, methamphetamine and alcohol  on the day he shot the young girl’s father.

According to Assistant District Attorney Leighton D’Antoni, the stalking of the girl didn’t stop when the suspect was jailed.

Ramirez went on to send numerous letters professing his love to the young teenager, as well as a letter to her mother and her father from behind bars.

“We’re talking about an adult who starts on a 13-year-old girl and stalks her,” D’Antoni said.. “I think there were 11 total tattoos of her name that he started putting on his body when, again, she was just 13-years-old. That’s more than a red flag. That’s scary.”

    This guy is uber-creepy! No amount of prison time away from the general public is enough for this madman.

      You almost might get the impression that Ramirez has issues…

    Like I have said before, I’m ready for Texas to secede from the union. All states have deranged people, but Texas seems to have way too many, especially in politics.

      OK, I’m getting tired of this. Yes, Texas whackos are in the news all the time. But so far we haven’t seen anyone kidnapping, beating and raping 3 women for a decade.

      I moved here from up north and yes, life is often colored in only primary colors – kinda like the weather. However, I’ve learned people in Texas are among the kindest, smartest, most compassionate and funny people anywhere. Unfortunately, the rate of eligible voters voting is in the sewer, so the Louie Gohmerts, George Warcriminal Bush, Rick Perrys and other mononic sociopaths keep getting elected.

      As for having “way too many” – Texas is a big place.
