On March 30, 2007, Mexican national, Alfredo Ramos slammed into the rear of a vehicle in which Alison Kuhnhardt, 17, and Tessa Tranchant, 16, were sitting, while waiting at a traffic light in Virginia Beach, Va.
Ramos was traveling at least 65 mph, when he hit their Plymouth Duster, and at the time of his arrest had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .24, three times the legal limit, according to court documents.
The two high school students had to be cut from their crumpled car and both died a short time after being transported to the hospital. Ramos suffered only a busted lip.
Ramos had been living in Virginia Beach for quite a while and worked at a local Mexican restaurant known as Mi Casita. He was previously convicted of three separate charges of public intoxication, identity theft, as well as a DUI.
Despite his criminal history and illegal status in this country, Ramos was never reported to federal immigration officials, and continued to live in the area. He speaks only Spanish and required an interpreter at all of his court proceedings.
The illegal alien pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated involuntary manslaughter. He was sentenced to 40 years in prison, with 15 of it suspended and ordered he be deported upon his release.
Late last night, during an exclusive interview with Ray Tranchant (Tessa’s dad), this reporter learned some very disturbing news…
The Virginia Parole Board has decided to release Ramos from Greensville Correctional Center on June 22...Nine years early.
Victims Services called me with the news…They notified me after the decision was made, so no victim’s impact statement!
This is the result of the WOKE prison system that [Gov.] Ralph Northam left us with.
That's right...these two girls' parents have been denied the right to address the parole board, explaining why this child-killer should remain in prison.
The original sentence called for Ramos to be deported upon his release, and if caught back in the United States, he would be sent back behind bars for the remaining 15 years of his sentence.
However, as Ray pointed out, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has suspended deportations, so there is now nothing to prevent Ramos from either staying or returning.
In fact, Ramos has a brother (who is also here illegally) currently living in Norfolk, Va. So, this killer may very well return permanently to the scene of the heinous crime.
