Pasadena man sentenced to 14 years for stalking felony
A Pasadena man was sentenced to 14 years in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for a second degree stalking felony and ordered to pay a $2,500 fine on September 3.
Gobin Ramroop, 57, who also uses the alias Govinda Vishnu, was indicted by a Galveston County Grand Jury and taken into custody in December 2009.
Ramroop had served 10 years of a 13-year sentence in Florida for the attempted murder of a male acquaintance of a former girlfriend.
He first caught the attention of Friendswood police in March 2008 when the 39-year-old female victim reported repeated instances of harassment. The woman, who met Ramroop at work, told police that he frequently wrote her, called her and expressed his love for her, and that his actions were disturbing.
Before his most recent sentence, Ramroop was convicted in March 2009 by a Brazoria County jury of harassment for harassing and stalking the same woman at her Pearland home. He served three months in the Brazoria County Jail and upon his release continued his harassment of the victim.
