Spanish Broadcasting System (NASDAQ: SBSA) (“SBS”) announced today that the next episode of “Maria Elvira Live” will focus on the well-known case of Pablo Ibar, who is currently on death row for a crime that he has fervently denied committing.

Pablo Ibar is a Florida-born Cuban American who is accused of killing three individuals in 1994. Ibar was convicted of the crime based on video surveillance that shows raw images of the killer. He was sentenced to death. Ibar has been in jail for over 16 years, and has denied any role in the killings. He also believes that he was improperly represented at his trial because his first attorney could not perform his duties in representing him due to an alcohol problem. Now, Ibar’s family is working hard to collect money to hire a new attorney for his final hearing on March 16th where a judge will decide whether to reopen his file or maintain his death penalty sentence.
On this very special episode, Maria Elvira Salazar will offer viewers an up close and personal look at all aspects of Ibar’s complex case, from the initial incident in 1994 leading all the way up to Ibar’s final hearing in a few weeks. In an unbiased fashion, Maria will delve into all details of his conviction and let viewers decide whether or not Ibar is guilty.
