Pablo Lyle Found Guilty Of Manslaughter:- As a result of a punch by Lyle in 2019, Juan Hernandez suffered a fatal head injury that resulted in his death. A jury found Pablo Lyle guilty of manslaughter on Tuesday. Mercedes Arce, Hernandez’s widow, was in tears. Lyle, who faces up to 15 years in prison, remained calm during the proceedings. Ana Araujo, 35, and her husband hugged their relatives and kissed each other later.

As Lyle blew an air kiss, corrections officers placed him in handcuffs and escorted him away. Mexican soap opera fans who agreed with People en Espanol’s 50 Most Beautiful in entertainment were devastated. His credits also include “My Adorable Curse,” “The Shadow of the Past,” and “Corazón Que Miente.” “Yankee,” an upcoming Netflix series, saw him tackling Malcolm Moriarty with plenty of punches.
During Tuesday morning’s jury deliberations, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Marisa Tinkler Mendez gave the jury instructions. In addition to her instructions, jurors requested a video. The conclusion they reached took them less than five hours.
In a statement released shortly after the announcement, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle said the jury’s verdict proved the “outrageous destructiveness” of road rage incidents.
There were two lives lost by simple road rage, a situation we see far too frequently on our streets as well as other streets throughout the country, Fernandez Rundle said.
The victim’s family also released a statement following the guilty verdict. It read, in part:
“The Hernandez family is grateful that the first phase in this three-and-a-half-year-long process has come to a close with the guilty verdict rendered today.”
His defense rested on Monday after Lyle declined to testify. To emphasize the punch was self-defense, attorney Philip Reizenstein stood before a picture of three children and Araujo.
“This case is about fear,” Reizenstein said.
Lyle punched Hernandez, 63, unnecessarily near the intersection of Northwest 27th Avenue and Northwest 14th Street on March 31, 2019, according to Assistant State Attorney Gabriela Alfaro.
Alfaro explained that the punch Mr. Lyle delivered actually caused the victim to fall back and hit his head, and ultimately those injuries caused him to die.
Hernandez, 63, died four days after he was punched. A manslaughter charge was then brought against Lyle, and he was arrested in Miami. According to the state’s “stand your ground” self-defense law, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Alan Fine refused to dismiss the case.
Lyle had been under house arrest for about three years before he was released on a $50,000 bond. As of yet, no date has been set for sentencing. According to Tinkler Mendez, he faces a minimum sentence of nine years in prison.
