Prison guard no longer locked up after last week's indictment and arrest

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The prison guard arrested last week while in uniform has been allowed out of jail on personal recognizance.

Jose Luis Ramirez-Pizarro was indicted by a Lubbock federal grand jury on one charge of False Representation of U.S. Citizenship and one charge of False Statement in Application For Passport. He was arrested Thursday outside the Giles Dalby Correctional Facility in Post. 

Prosecutors originally sought to have Ramirez-Pizarro detained until trial, but that motion was dropped and a federal magistrate allowed him to go free without posting bond.

Ramirez-Pizarro's family has insisted from the very day of his arrest that he is in fact a U.S. citizen and innocent of the charges.
