Prominent Miami Real Estate Figure Pleads Not Guilty in Fatal Boating Accident

Opublikowano przez Marcin Strzembosz włączony 19 września, 2023

George Pino, prominent figure in Miami’s real estate industry, has entered a plea of not guilty to charges related to a fatal boating accident that occurred on Labor Day in 2022. Pino was operating his 29-foot Robalo boat when it collided with a channel marker off Boca Chita, resulting in him, his wife, and twelve teenage girls being thrown into the water. Tragically, 17-year-old Lucy Fernandez lost her life in the accident, while 18-year-old Katy Puig was left permanently disabled. Both girls were seniors at Our Lady of Lourdes Academy in Southwest Miami-Dade.

The State Attorney’s Office has filed three misdemeanor charges against Pino, after finding over 60 empty cans and bottles of alcohol on the boat, including an empty champagne bottle and a partially empty bottle of alcohol. Pino refused to provide a blood sample, and responding officers reported no signs of impairment.

A status hearing is scheduled in two weeks, with a trial expected to begin in mid-October. In addition to the criminal charges, the families of the victims have also filed civil lawsuits against Pino.

This tragic boating accident has had a profound effect on the families of the victims and the community at large. It serves as a reminder of the importance of boating safety and responsible alcohol consumption while operating a vessel. As the legal process continues, the families are seeking justice for their loved ones, while Pino maintains his plea of not guilty.
