Santa Rosa Man To Serve 35 Years For Three Violent Crimes


A Santa Rosa man is spending 35 years behind bars for three violent crimes he committed in fewer than two years. Bernabe Ramirez Martinez was sentenced Monday following his conviction on misdemeanor reckless driving while intoxicated, felony child endangerment, and felony attempting to remove an officer’s firearm in connection with a June 2017 crash that occurred with his girlfriend and infant daughter in the car. The 28-year-old was in Sonoma County Jail for those crimes in February 2018 when he stabbed another inmate multiple times with a weapon he made from a hairbrush. The attack resulted in an attempted murder conviction.
