Huntington Beach Defendant Vicente Garcia Ramirez Sentenced For DUI Death – California Penal Code Section 193
It was recently reported that a Huntington Beach man was sentenced to 16 months in state prison following a drunk driving accident. In the early morning hours of January 9th, 23-year-old Vicente Garcia Ramirez was driving in Garden Grove when he lost control of his Nissan Altima on Magnolia Street and crashed into a tree. His passenger, Joyce Lopez, 22, died hours later. Ramirez, who had a blood-alcohol level of .08 percent, had been drinking at a party before he got behind the wheel and was driving at an “unsafe speed” before he lost control of the car.

Appearing with his attorney, defendant Ramirez pleaded guilty to one felony count of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated without gross negligence and one misdemeanor count of driving a motor vehicle without a valid license. He was sentenced to one year and four months in prison.

Ramirez faced up to six years in state prison for the felony vehicular manslaughter charge.
