Man Sentenced for Commerce City Carjacking

17th Judicial District Attorney Don Quick announced that Marcos Giron (dob: 09/14/1986) was sentenced yesterday for crimes involving several attempted car jackings in Commerce City.

On March 13, 2009 Giron and Peter Ramirez perpetrated an Aggravated Robbery on a victim they contacted through Craig’s List. After escaping from the scene, Giron and Ramirez were discovered and followed by two Commerce City Detectives, Dan McCoy and Derek Aragon. Eventually the car the Giron and Ramirez were driving broke down. They abandoned their vehicle and attempted to car jack other citizens. Det. Aragon, seeing Giron point a gun at a victim, fired his weapon at Giron, hitting him in the arm and forcing him to drop his weapon. Giron continued to flee with Ramirez, who was still armed and attempting to steal other cars in order to escape. The Detectives determined that Ramirez was substantial threat and was behaving desperately in his actions. As a result, Ramirez was shot by law enforcement and eventually died from his wounds.

On August 2, 2010, a jury found Giron guilty of Aggravated Robbery (F3), Attempted Aggravated Robbery (F4), Attempted Robbery (F5), Theft (F4) and Felony Menacing (F5). Adams County District Court Judge F. Michael Goodbee sentenced Giron to a total of 37 years in the Colorado Department of Corrections, with five years mandatory parole.
