Lawmaker Gets Gamut Of Cautionary Measures
Embattled Libertarian Movement lawmaker Ovidio Agüero got no breaks in a pretrial hearing before Costa Rica’s Penal Branch of the Supreme Court (Sala III) Tuesday.
The court ordered the full range of cautionary pretrial measures against Agüero, who is charged with manslaughter after hitting and killing cyclist Víctor Arroyo, 25, while allegedly driving drunk on the highway from Cariari to his hometown of Guápiles on the Caribbean slope in the early morning hours of Nov. 2. Agüero, 55, must forfeit his driver’s license and passport and is barred from leaving the country. He is also prohibited from contacting the victim’s family and other witnesses, including for settlement negotiations, and is required to check in with judicial officials every 30 days.
