The defense of Mexican actor Pablo Lyle, who is accused of involuntary manslaughter for the death of a man he punched in a traffic argument in Miami, asked for the actor to be allowed to travel to Mexico while an appeal they filed is resolved.

Known for acting in soap operas, Lyle, who is 33 years old, appeared before his first hearing with Judge Marlene Fernández-Karavetsos, who has taken the case previously assessed by Judge Alan S. Fine, who in September 2019 denied to apply a Florida self-defense law in favor of the actor.

Lyle’s lawyers appealed the decision but Justice has yet to deliver.

Have you heard of the trial against Pablo Lyle?

Lawyers Bruce Lehrer and Philip Reizenstein argued before the judge that after the March 31, 2019 incident in which Lyle punched the 63-years-old Cuban Juan Ricardo Hernández, the actor was in Mexico and returned as he had promised when the judge granted him permission to travel.

Hernández died in a hospital four days after being hit by Lyle, which aggravated the case for the actor, who has been in house arrest in Miami, with an electronic shackle, and without a passport since April 9.

Today, the prosecutors expressed their disagreement of Pablo Lyle traveling to Mexico for fear of him not returning.

Now, Fernández-Karavetsos must deliver; in today’s audience, she asked for the migratory status of the actor and his lawyers answered that he has a tourist visa.

Lyle, with short hair and a beard, was serious during the hearing that lasted less than half an hour.

On May 31, 2019, Lyle was on his way to the Miami airport with his son in a vehicle driven by his brother-in-law Lucas Delfino when they came across the car driven by Hernández.

In a traffic light, the Cuban went off his vehicle to reprimand Delfino for a maneuver he had made.

Amidst the fight, Lyle got out of the car and punched Hernández who, according to video recorded by surveillance cameras of a nearby gas station, immediately fell down.

The 63-years old died four days later in a hospital.

Did you know Pablo Lyle wants the manslaughter case against him to be dismissed?

A forensic report of the Miami-Dade County revealed that Hernández died from “complications for blunt trauma in the head” and wrote down “homicide” as a possible cause of death.

The actor, married to Ana Araújo, with whom he has a son, was arrested on March 31 soon after the incident and was first under parole with a USD $5,000 bail.

After Hernández’s death, Lyle was accused of involuntary manslaughter and put under house arrest.
