YAKIMA, Wash.- Joel Ramos was in court Friday, asking the judge to release him on bail. Ramos plead guilty 15 years ago to murdering a family of four that lived in Outlook.
Ramos was 14 years old at the time of the murders. He was sentenced to 80 years in prison and will be released at the earliest in 2061 unless he's released on bail. Ramos filed his appeal in 2005 and says he was coerced into pleading guilty.
