Name of case - Pablo Ibar, Death Row Appeal Case - Miami, Florida, USA
Result of Challenge - The retrial for Pablo Ibar resulted in his removal from the death sentence. SRi Forensics were approached by one of the oldest and largest criminal defense law firm in Florida, Robbins, Tunkey, Ross, Amsel, Raben & Waxman, to give an expert facial comparison opinion in a high profile triple homicide appeal case. We were asked to assess and analyse old CCTV footage showing the brutal murder of a male and two females. Their client, Pablo Ibar was one of the alleged assailants.
Result - Following the hearing in 2019 in which SRi Forensics appeared again to give testimony to a US court in Florida, while not exonerated of the crime, Ibar is given a life sentence rather than death.
Those bringing the case to court were impressed enough to give a glowing citation of SRi Forensics. Benji Waxman, partner and case lawyer said this about our work...
"Ray Evans was very professional, easy to work with, and a formidable expert in the courtroom. He worked seamlessly with me from across the pond, through email, fax, and telephone, and delivered a detailed affidavit under a tight timeline. He provided me a wealth of background materials of which I was otherwise unaware. In court he was poised and articulate. If I am successful in Ibar's case as I hope, I will blame a large part of the success on Ray." Benjamin S. Waxman
