Bravo Trial Day 1: Narrowing Down Prospective Jurors
Published August 4th, 2014
GAINESVILLE - The trial for the Santa Fe College student accused of killing UF student Christian Aguilar begins Monday. The Pedro Bravo trial starts with jury selection.
There are about 400-600 jurors at the courthouse right now and 6 different trials going on however its one trial that has everyone talking.
Pedro Bravo is being accused of killing his good friend Christian Aguilar.
Surveillance video from Best Buy caught the two together the day Aguilar went missing which was on September 20th 2012.
Aguilar's body was eventually found by hunters in a wooded area, in Levy County in October.
We talked to Darry Lloyd the spokesperson for the State Attorneys Office he says they are not seeking the death penalty. He says that was a decision made by Will Cervone, the state attorney for the 8th judicial circuit. He says cervone did consult the Aguilar family for that.
However Bravo could face life in prison without parole.
Right now they are seeking a 14 member panel for the jury. That means-- 12 jurors and two alternates.
