Early release denied for deadly crash
Placeholder Image
A young man who escaped with just a year in jail for killing a teenage passenger when he slammed into a tree after huffing fumes to get high has been denied early release.In reality, the jail term for Ramiro R. Ibarra, 20, is close to over since he was sentenced to the year in jail in September and is due good time credits which will make the sentence just over eight months. However, Ibarra was wanting to be released immediately so he could have some medical work done and serve the rest of his time on community corrections. He still owns the state 12 years on probation once he gets out of jail.Ibarra entered guilty pleas last year for the death of 17-year-old passenger Ashlyn Barnes and for injuries sustained by his other three passengers.
