Judge Venzer denied his request.
The state made the claim that Guillen is a flight risk and danger to the community.
Guillen attorney Bruce Lehr said he will appeal the decision.

“I was a little shocked that they would even ask for something like that. He is a flight risk, clearly, so I’m happy with the decision.”
A jury found Guillen guilty of DUI manslaughter on March 3rd in the death of 13-year-old Kaely Camacho.
The unanimous verdict also found him guilty of vehicular homicide, and leaving the scene of an accident.
Guillen’s blood-alcohol level was nearly triple the legal limit. He was discovered walking, bloodied and evasive, in a field near the scene of the wreck and his DNA matched the blood on the airbag of the SUV that plowed into the Camacho family minivan, shearing it in half and killing Kaely on April 13, 2012. Guillen was also illegally driving in the Miami-Dade busway when the crash happened.

Guillen faces up to 30 years in prison for his crimes. No date has been given for his sentencing.
