STOCKTON, CA - The surviving suspect from July's bank robbery, police chase and police shootout incident entered a plea in the case. Jaime Ramos pleaded not guilty during a quick hearing Monday morning in Stockton.
Ramos and two other men were suspected of robbing a bank and taking three hostages during the getaway. Police and the suspects exchanged gunfire during an hour-long chase throughout parts of north Stockton and San Joaquin County. Hostage Misty Holt Singh was killed by police gunfire as were the other two suspects.
Ramos was charged with crimes that resulted from the bank robbery, including the murders of the other two suspects.
A preliminary hearing date of Jan. 8 was set in this case, and district attorney spokesman Robert Himelblau said that hearing would likely last three or four days.
