TV Barred at Ramirez Hearing

February 12, 1986

A Los Angeles judge today refused to allow television coverage of a Feb. 24 preliminary hearing for "Night Stalker" defendant Richard Ramirez, citing concerns about courtroom dignity.

Municipal Court Judge James F. Nelson upheld a previous decision by Municipal Court Judge Candace Cooper. Ramirez, 25, a drifter from El Paso, is charged with 14 counts of murder with special circumstances and 54 related crimes attributed to the so-called Night Stalker who terrified California residents with a string of slayings, rapes and attacks last summer.
