Ramirez was booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail Tuesday. 

Assistant County Attorney Andrew Olson recommended a $10,000 cash-only bond in Ramirez's name because of the nature of the charge and an ICE detainer and/or hold on him, according to court documents. 

Following his initial court appearance late Wednesday morning, Ramirez was released on his own recognizance pending a June 7 preliminary hearing.
