Fatal Hit-and-Run Suspect To Be Released

Sandor Guillen, 38, was back in court Monday after he was taken into custody for testing positive for amphetamines. His attorney Bruce Lehr presented documentation that he was approved to take the medication, and Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Ellen Sue Venzer said she would allow Guillen to post bond and leave jail Tuesday as long as he meets drug testing requirements, though he will remain under house arrest. Camacho family spokesman Bruce Cease also spoke about the case.
