Ramsaran arrested for bribery

Standard

Ganesh Remy Ramsaran was convicted of killing his wife in September. Now weeks before sentencing, new charges were filed against the former New Berlin resident.
According to authorities, Ramsaran conspired to escape from the Chenango County Correctional Facility, and proposed a $100,000 bribe to a corrections officer.
Honesty prevailed here as the corrections officer immediately reported the incident to his supervisor.
“He was being very secretive,” said Chenango County Sheriff Ernest Cutting of Ramsaran. “There were many steps on how he was going to escape.”
Details of Ramsaran’s arrest are available at http://www.evesun.com/news/stories/2014-11-05/20292/Authorities-Ramsaran-bribed-Corrections-Officer-to-aid-in-escape/
Ramsaran is charged with bribery in the second degree, a Class C felony in New York State. He is facing up to 15 years in prison, a sentence that could run consecutively with his pending second-degree murder sentence.
The District Attorney’s office said that additional charges may be filed as the investigation into the alleged bribery is ongoing. Ramsaran will appear in court Friday to face the bribery charge.
Ramsaran was arrested in May, 2013 in the death of his wife, Jennifer Ramsaran. The case received widespread regional attention drawing the interest of Dateline NBC.
The case was profiled in the Dateline episode “Secret Lives,” airing Friday, Oct. 31. The video of the episode is available online at http://www.nbcnews.com/feature/dateline-full-episodes/full-episode-secret-lives-n239536.
