After two years of constant police harassment, intimidation, dubious arrests, & torture in Rikers Island jail, he took a plea deal.
solitary et al
Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed the murder of Eric Garner, just agreed to a plea deal in Staten Island. He will serve four years.
One count of a heroin sale and one count of gun possession. Four years, plus 1 1/2-3 years post-release supervision.
Ramsey Orta’s mother, Emily Mercado, also pleaded to a misdemeanor drug charge and will receive three years probation.
Ramsey had numerous open cases and that was one, but it wasn’t part of the plea deal. One drug and one gun charge.
Ramsey Orta isn’t going to jail for filming. Nor is it for domestic violence. It’s a gun charge and a drug charge.
