Springfield Man Found Guilty of Attempted Murder


Despite high-powered legal help, a Springfield man has been found guilty of attempted murder and other charges after allegedly trying to shoot at police following a chase.

 

A Sangamon County jury needed less than two hours to return the guilty verdict against Jesus Ramirez for that January 2011 incident.

 

Prosecutors say Ramirez attempted to fire at two different officers, and to turn the gun on himself, but couldn’t fire the weapon because the safety was on.

 

Ramirez, who was represented by former Rod Blagojevich defense lawyers Sam Adam Sr. and Jr., faces up to 250 years in prison when he’s sentenced in November.
