West Sacramento man denied parole in fatal gang shooting

A West Sacramento man serving time for his role in a 1999 gang murder will remain in prison for at least three more years.

Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced that the Board of Parole Hearing Commissioners on Tuesday denied parole to 32-year-old Ramiro Acevedo Jr. The hearing was held at the California State Prison in Soledad, where Acevedo is serving a sentence of 15 years to life.

On Aug. 26, 1999, Acevedo and fellow Broderick Boy Manuel Trujillo went to the home of 18-year-old Julio Robledo to retaliate for a shooting in which Trujillo was allegedly targeted. Acevedo sat in the car while Trujillo went up to the house with a shotgun and fatally shot Robledo in the chest, according to a District Attorney's Office news release. Others were seriously injured in the shooting.

Acevedo was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison in a deal with prosecutors to testify against Trujillo, who was convicted by a jury of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.

Commissioners praised Acevedo's recent efforts in prison to focus his life in more positive directions but cited the serious circumstances of the case as well as Acevedo's inadequate parole plans in denying parole, according to the District Attorney's Office.

Acevedo will not be eligible for parole again until 2016.
