The Coral Gables man convicted in the drunk-driving death of a 13-year-old girl is asking for a new trial.

Sandor Guillen has already been denied a post-trial release as he awaits sentencing for his DUI manslaughter conviction for the death of Kaely Camacho.

Guillen was convicted in March after prosecutors showed evidence to jurors that his blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit when he crashed into the minivan Camacho was riding in, tearing the vehicle nearly in half, and killing the child.

The incident happened in April 2012 near Southwest 184th Street near U.S.1, in Miami-Dade County.

His attorney Bruce Lehr has previously said his client has a right to another trial, and the defense will be arguing that Monday.

Guillen faces up to 30 years in prison for the current conviction.
