Man collapses, dies minutes after being sentenced to jail
CLEVELAND, Ohio (PIX11) – Moments after a judge handed down his sentence, a 51-year-old man collapsed and died outside an Ohio courtroom, authorities said.
A handcuffed Miguel Aybar was being escorted out of the courtroom Wednesday by guards when he collapsed, a Cleveland Municipal Court spokesman told PIX11 sister station Fox 8.
Aybar had just been sentenced to 60 days in jail for trying to restrain and kiss a 14-year-old girl on her mouth, the Associated Press reports. He had been found guilty of a third-degree misdemeanor charge of unlawful restraint.
An official cause of death has not been determined. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office is investigating the case.
