Sandor Guillen, 38, was taken into custody Friday after a random urine test came back positive for amphetamines. Defense attorney Bruce Lehr, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Ellen Sue Venzer and Sally Matson of Mothers Against Drunk Driving discussed the development.
The man charged with killing a 13-year-old girl in southwest Miami-Dade after a fatal hit-and-run accident was taken into custody Friday after a random urine test came back positive for amphetamines.
Sandor Guillen, 38, is facing charges including vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident after the April 13 crash that killed Kaely Camacho.
Guillen, who has entered a not guilty plea, said in court Friday that he tested positive because he was prescribed the medication Adderall for his attention deficit disorder, but he did not have the prescription with him.
“All I have is a gentleman who's charged with a serious crime, who has now tested positive for amphetamines, who is just telling me that he has a prescription but could not describe to me who the doctor was, why he goes to Fort Lauderdale to a nurse practitioner when he lives down south,” said Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Ellen Sue Venzer.
She decided to put Guillen back into custody over the weekend until she could get some answers.
Guillen's attorney, Bruce Lehr, said his client couldn't remember his doctor's name because he was nervous.
“I will come back on Monday with a prescription showing that he had the legal right to be on these drugs and that they were medicated,” Lehr said.
Camacho was killed when Guillen’s Land Rover struck her father’s minivan, ripping it in half on Southwest 184th Street, police said. After Guillen’s car rammed into a tree and spun five times, he fled from the scene on foot but was quickly caught, officials said.
Camacho was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center where she later died.
Father Kirk Camacho, 47, and sister Bree Ann, 16, were also hospitalized and later released.
Guillen had been home detention after being released on bond last year.
