Brennan McCarthy, the lawyer who represented the woman Ramos harassed, told CBS, "He was as angry an individual as I have ever seen". Rather than thanks, he responded with vicious abuse, sending her messages such as: "Have another drink and go hang yourself, you cowardly little lush". "He wrote a letter to her [employer] stating that they should fire her because she's a 'bipolar drunkard.' He did bad things to this woman". In 2011, she took him to court, where he pleaded guilty to criminal harassment and was placed on 18-months' probation.
The hearing for 38-year-old Jarrod Ramos is set for July 24 in Annapolis, Maryland. He brought a legal case against the paper for harming his reputation which was thrown out in 2012.
"There is nothing in those complaints that prove that anything that was published about you is, in fact, false", the judge said, according to court documents.
He was sacked in 2014 from his federal government contract job as a help desk specialist for the Bureau of Labor Statistics because he posed "security suitability concerns", according to court documents obtained by CNN.
The lawsuit eventually was dismissed, but that did not stop Ramos from launching a Twitter campaign in which he unleashed vitriol against the paper and its staff, including threats against the former staff reporter who wrote about his harassment conviction, Eric Thomas Hartley, and the retired publisher, Tom Marquardt. "We're just trying to tell their stories".
The detective, Michael Praley, said in a report at the time that he "did not believe Mr. Ramos was a threat to employees" at the paper, noting that Ramos hadn't tried to get into the building and hadn't sent "direct, threatening correspondence". According to a 2013 police report obtained by CNN, staffers decided that pursuing any charges against him would be equivalent to "putting a stick in a beehive".
