Candido Ibar (the alternatives)

The voice of Candido Ibar, Pablo Ibar’s father, when was speaking of the alternatives that the jury has since this one has the option of condemning his son to death or to life imprisonment.

The defense of the American-Hispanic Pablo Ibar initiated last Wednesday in the middle of the adversity the fight to avoid that it is condemned until death in the fourth trial by three murders in 1994.

At the start of the sentencing phase of the trial, Judge Dennis Bailey denied a defense motion for the State of Florida to prohibit Ibar from being sentenced to death based on the “international human rights” of his two minor children.

The jury, which last January declared Ibar guilty of the charges against him for the deaths of Casimir Sucharski, Marie Rogers and Sharon Anderson, now has the option of sentencing him to the death penalty or to life imprisonment, two “bad” alternatives “, said the father of the defendant, former “pelotari” Candido Ibar, told EFE.

As long as there is life, there is hope and I think we will achieve it, but, well, everything depends on the jury.”
