On Thursday, Ramirez was convicted of six counts of Child Endangerment and one count of Injury to a Child. Back in 2007, she was caught forcing seven of her children to live in complete filth. She faced up to two years in jail for each endangerment charge and ten years for injuring a child. After about two hours of deliberating, the jury gave her the maximum sentence for each count against her ... a total of 22 years. However, the sentences will run concurrently so, Ramirez is headed to prison for ten years.
Asst. District Attorney Jennifer Bassett says, "It's a thoughtful, considerate verdict considering all the evidence and very appropriate for the nature of this crime, the number of children involved, and what they endured."
Now, Ramirez's attorney requested that she be allowed to start serving her time after she gives birth to her tenth child in early June. The judge denied that request and Ramirez was immediately taken into custody. She has 30 days to appeal her conviction and sentence.
