No more jail time for drunken man accused of harassing Tacoma teenager

A man accused of harassing a teenage girl outside a Tacoma school won’t serve more jail time.

Luis Ramon Ramos Aguilar, 38, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault Wednesday as part of plea negotiations, and was sentenced to a year in jail.

He got credit for the 87 days he’d spent in jail after his arrest, and the rest of the 277 days of his sentence were suspended. That means he won’t serve the time if he avoids further trouble with the law.

According to charging papers: Aguilar and another man pulled up to a 16-year-old girl May 1 outside of First Creek Middle School, 1801 E. 56th St. They cornered her, and Aguilar had his belt undone and his pants unbuttoned, and appeared drunk.

That’s when the girl’s mother and stepfather arrived, intervened and called police.

Explaining the plea agreement, deputy prosecutor Heather DeMaine said the girl and her family have moved away, after which prosecutors weren’t able to reach her to see if she could identified Aguilar in a photo montage.
