Colby student challenges bail conditions

WATERVILLE, Maine — One of three Colby College students arrested on Easter is challenging bail conditions that bar him from possessing alcohol and require that he submit to searches and testing for alcohol use or possession.

Attorney Jason Jabar told the Morning Sentinel that the bail conditions violate Ozzy Ramirez’ Fourth Amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizure.

Ramirez, who is 22 and from the Bronx, N.Y., is charged with assault and criminal trespassing for allegedly trying to interfere with efforts to assist a student who was ill on the floor of a campus building after a dance.

District Attorney Evert Fowle says the bail conditions are appropriate and that Ramirez’ drinking helped get him into trouble.
