Former Janesville Man Pleads Guilty to Damaging Police Vehicles

Court records show a former Janesville man pleaded guilty to causing more than $10,000 in damage to City of Delavan police cars after saying the “white man’s law” hurt his sister financially.

Ricardo S. Ortiz, 31, most recently of Delavan, pleaded guilty Jan. 16 to criminal damage to property, according to online court records. 

Ortiz, who told police he was Native American, caused $10,361 in damage to three squad cars, the complaint states. He told police he hit the cars because of the financial problems and because “white people” took his land from him.
