He is scheduled to appear Nov. 15 in a Burbank Superior Court for a preliminary hearing, court officials said.
Ovando was arrested June 29 following a one-hour pursuit that reached speeds of more than 90 mph and went onto the 134, 210, 605, 110, 10, 5 and 60 freeways.
Police officers tried to stop Ovando’s vehicle at Colorado Street and Brand Boulevard for a traffic violation, but he fled, officials said.
The pursuit ended after Ovando stopped at his attorney’s house on the 1700 block of Eckhart Avenue in Rosemead, an unincorporated area of south San Gabriel, police said.
Ovando, who was a reputed member of the 18th Street gang, was shot four times in 1996 by ex-LAPD officer Rafael Perez and his partner Nino Durden. Ovando was left paralyzed.
Perez told authorities that he and Durden shot Ovando and planted a TEC-22 short-barreled assault rifle on him to rationalize the shooting.
Ovando was found guilty during his 1997 court case in connection with the shooting and spent two years in prison.
His conviction was overturned in 1999 after authorities determined that testimony by Durden and Perez was false.
Ovando sued Los Angeles County for providing him with an incompetent public defender, who should have discovered Perez had tried to frame him. Ovando won his case and received a $15-million settlement in 2000 from the city of Los Angeles.
The lawsuit was connected to the LAPD Rampart scandal that accused eight officers of corruption and police abuse.
Perez testified to a pattern of police corruption within the Rampart Division in order to get a reduced sentence for falsifying testimony and being involved in police misconduct. He accused about 70 division officers of being involved in shootings, beatings and false arrests.
A federal court judge sentenced Perez to two years in prison for violating Ovando’s civil rights.
