HART — A 26-year-old Hart man facing deportation to Mexico pleaded guilty in 27th Circuit Court Monday, April 10, to a felony of breaking and entering.

Serafin Delacruz-Ramirez, of 88th Ave. Jackson Unit, could be deported to Mexico following his release from incarceration due to an immigration hold, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

Ramirez’s last name was initially listed in court files as Rodriguez, but he brought it to the court’s attention that his last name is actually Rameriz. Bizon did not object to changing his last name in the court records.

Ramirez was assisted in communicating with Judge Bradley Lambrix through interpreter Penny Burillo.

“I forced the door to enter,” Ramirez testified through his interpreter. The crime scene was at Chapita Hills in Shelby, he testified through interpretation.

Ramirez was arrested last February by the Shelby Police Department for felonies of first-degree home invasion and unlawful imprisonment and lodged in the Oceana County Jail on a $7,500/cash/surety/10 percent bond.

Ramirez pleaded to an added third count of breaking and entering, which is a 10-year felony.

In exchange for his plea to breaking and entering, the court dismissed the other two counts. The prosecution made a recommendation of a non-prison sentence, so he will serve a jail term.

Sentencing is set for May 22.
