The Guy Who Framed His Ex-GF For Burglary -- And Almost Got Away With It
5 of 11
In 2010, Seemona Sumasar was arrested and put in prison for holding up three people at gunpoint. The only problem? She hadn't done the crime, and in fact, Sumasar's ex-boyfriend Jerry Ramrattan had framed her for the burglary. It seems Ramrattan was angry that Sumasar had accused him of raping her, and so he used intimidation and bribery to convince three illegal immigrants to claim that Sumasar had robbed them at gunpoint. (Ramrattan gave the "victims" Sumasar's sister's license plate number to recite to the police.) Cops didn't question their stories, and Sumasar languished in jail for seven months awaiting trial, until an anonymous informant told the police that Ramrattan had set the whole thing up. "It was like an episode of 'Law & Order,'" said police. "He's a cop wannabe. He knew police procedure. He prepped the witnesses so well. He told one to give partial plates in order to be good, but not so good, so he seemed credible. He picked people he knew, but who didn't know each other. And he used different phones to contact them all. It was very clever," said District Attorney spokesperson Carol Trottere. In the meantime, Sumasar lost both her business and her home. Ramrattan is now awaiting his trial in prison.
