Julian Brunelle Ramirez, 21, Minot, was sentenced on March 1 to 360 days in jail, all suspended but the five days he has already served in the Ward County Jail, and two years of supervised probation for the lesser offense of Class A misdemeanor criminal trespass. He had originally been charged with Class B felony burglary and Class C felony aggravated assault. Judge Richard Hagar also ordered Ramirez to pay $325 in court costs.

Under the terms of a plea deal with the state, Ramirez must also testify truthfully against his co-defendant, Brennon Gene Lovell, 24, who is scheduled to go to trial on the Class B felony burglary and Class C felony aggravated assault charges against him on April 27 before Hagar in district court in Minot.

According to court documents, the men had been accused of going over to another man’s house and beating him up as part of an ongoing dispute on Aug. 28, 2020.

Ramirez had denied that he ever touched the alleged victim and said he didn’t know the other man. The alleged victim of the assault told police that he had been pushed onto the floor of a garage while he was being beaten. He suffered a brain bleed and had cuts on his head and chest.
