GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- A judge has granted bond to Pedro Bravo, the person of interest in the disappearance of a U.F. student, but it's unclear if he will be able to afford it.
The judge granted Bravo a $100,000 bond. Bravo would be required to wear a GPS monitor. He would also have to pay the monthly fee for upkeep of the monitor.
The judge also stipulated that Bravo would not be allowed to leave the State of Florida and would have to avoid any contact with the victim.
Bravo's attorney tells Action News that his client will not likely be able to afford the 10 percent up-front fee required by most bond agents, so he will most likely remain in jail.
During the hearing, Bravo's attorney also told the judge Bravo's family was willing to assist in the search for Christian Aguilar if the missing student's family was willing to let them.
Pedro Bravo was named as a person of interest in the disappearance of Christian Aguilar Monday after police determined Aguilar may be in danger. Bravo is charged with Depriving a Victim of Medical care, a third degree felony.
The UF student was reportedly with Bravo on Thursday night shortly before he disappeared. Police say Bravo admitted to getting into a fight with Aguilar that night. He told investigators that Aguilar was injured but alive when the two parted.
The Gainesville Police department has released new information in the search for Aguilar. A command post has been setup at Forest Park at SW 43rd Street and 20th Avenue.
The search for Aguilar is ongoing and police are being assisted by family members and friends of the Aguilar family.
Several search warrants have also been executed in the case, but police will not say exactly where or what they were looking for.
Police have released a surveillance picture of Aguilar and Bravo taken Thursday afternoon.
Anyone with information that may aid in the investigation is asked to call Gainesville police at 352-393-7670.
