A lengthy prison term awaits an illegal immigrant convicted of molesting a child during a family outing on the Colorado River over the 4th of July, 2015 holiday. A Mohave County Superior Court jury deliberated about two hours before finding Jose Raul Ramos-Ramirez guilty of child molestation on July 13.
Authorities alleged Ramos-Ramirez gave his step-daughter’s eleven-year-old friend a jet ski ride on the river in Bullhead City. Police said he touched the girl improperly after driving the jet ski out of the view of their group at Community Park.
The victim told her mother of being molested after they returned. Ramos-Ramirez faces a 10-24 year prison term when sentenced by Judge Steve Conn on August 15.
